Jimmy Buffett – Steamer lyrics

By: john scott sherrill
For the band
I remember that steamer
Time you set sail
The crowd was steamin
Streamin and leanin on the rail

Then the big whistle blew
And I lost my place
Next thing I knew
I could not find your face

I can see myself dreamin
The time you came home
Your face was beamin
Seemin to stand out alone

Dinner bell chimed
And I found my seat
And your eyes met mine
Your smile was so sweet

I remember that river
First time we made love
Oh I still kinda shiver a little
At what Im thinkin of

How your dress it just floated
All down around your knees
And I held my breath, my God my girl
Cause I could not believe


Most of all it's that steamer
Time you set sail
Ah the crowds always steamin
Streamin and leanin on the rail

Then the big whistle blows
And I always lose my place
Next thing I know
I cannot find your face
