David Wilcox – Riverboat Fantasy lyrics

Sittin' on a riverboat
Havin' a party
Me and my Cajun Queen
She's turnin' twenty-one on the Mississippi river
Headin' down to New Orleans
The year is 1894
Oh come on mama
And love me some more
Her dark eyes flash
Like a gambler's rings
She shakes her pretty head and sings

Life for me is a riverboat fantasy
Watchin'the sun go down
A rock and roll band
With a reefer in my hand
Now look at that wheel go around
Cocaine kisses and moonshine Misses
That's the life for me
I'm sailing away from my heartache
On a riverboat fantasy

Can't think, can't drink
Anymore whisky
I could'a drunk a river dry
Mmmmm... This old boat she's
Just sittin' in the moonlight
Catchin' the gleam in her eye
Showers of rain come pourin' down
The sky full of stars
Like a french lace gown
Shimmer, glimmer
I think I'm gonna fall
Woops catch me mama, that's all

Life for me is a riverboat fantasy
Watchin' the sun go down
A rock and roll band
With a reefer in my hand
Now look at that wheel go around
Cocaine kisses and moonshine Misses
That's the life for me
I'm sailing away from my heartache
On a riverboat fantasy

Delta sun beats down like a hammer
Mmmm.... It gives the low down blues
I've got a cotton gin
I'll weave and spin
And shake the dust from my shoes
I made my money
I found me a honey
To tickle me under my chin
When morning comes
I'll ride into town
And worry about the shape I'm in

Life for me is a riverboat fantasy
Watchin' the sun go down
A rock and roll band
With a reefer in my hand
Now look at that wheel go around
Cocaine kisses and moonshine Misses
That's the life for me
Yes it is
I'm sailing away from my heartache
On a riverboat fantasy
