Lawdy mercy land of Goshen
Shades of gray out on the ocean
Don't you dare take that boat out to sea

For the high seas are runnin'
You will sure enough be done in
If you dare, take that boat out to sea

'Cause out there in the Gulf
The wind is blowin' like a bandit
And I'm talkin' 'bout a hurricane
And your riggin' will not stand it

There's an ill wind a blowin'
You better get back to your moorin'
If you dare take that boat out to sea

You better take a weather warnin'
Or you'll be shark bait in the mornin'
If you dare, take that boat out to sea

You better give up on that shrimpin'
Or you might come home a limpin'
If you dare take that boat out to sea

You better not make one more drag
Or you may wind up in a bag
If you dare take that boat out to sea

'Cause out there in the Gulf
The wind is blowin' like a bandit
And I'm talkin' 'bout a hurricane
And your riggin' will not stand it

Lawdy mercy land of Goshen
Shades of gray out on the ocean
Don't you dare take that boat out to sea
