Steamer
By: john scott sherrill
1981
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

(instrumental)

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

- notes:
Vocals: jimmy buffett, deborah mccoll
Acoustic lead guitar: barry chance
