Bobby Blue Bland – Rockin' In The Same Old Boat lyrics

There's a frown on your face
I see a teardrop on your coat
And I know just how you feel
Because we're rocking in
The same old boat

You know I smile to keep from crying
Because I just got a Drear John note
And I know you know what I'm saying
Because we're rocking in
The same old boat

Come on, baby
It's gonna be smooth sailing tonight
Baby, throw your arms around me
Don't you know everything's
Gonna be all right, oh

Now the frown has left your face
And I burned the Dear John note
And I know there'll be
No more sad feelings
Because we're rocking in
The same old boat

Listen, baby, Lord, oh, Lord
My baby, don't you know
Oh, Lord, I love you, yeah, yeah
My baby, oh, baby

My baby, my baby, yeah
Mmm, oh, baby, yeah
Don't you know it's all right
