Something bout a boat sitting on the sea
Out there in the wind, floatin’ on the free
Take her round the world, bring you back home
Gives a man hope, something bout a boat

Something bout an old guitar and the way it still sings
After all the smokey bars and the broken strings
Played a million songs, broke a lotta hearts,
Made some people stars
Something bout an old guitar

Ain’t it crazy how something seems like nothing at all
Take a big ole room, make it seem so small
Seeing windows where there are walls
Makes a whole lot of something out of nothing at all

Something bout your dog sittin’ by your side
If you’ve had a bad day, she ain’t gonna run and hide
Just a-waggin that tail, grinnin’ that grin
Something bout my dog makes her my best friend.

Ain’t crazy how something seems like nothing at all
Take a big ole room, make it seem so small
Seeing windows where there are walls
Makes a whole lot of something out of nothing at all
Makes a whole lot of something out of nothing at all

Something bout a dog
Something bout an old guitar
Something bout a boat
Gives a man hope
