Guy Clark – Boats To Build lyrics
[Verse 1]
It's time for a change
I'm tired of that same old same
The same old words the same old lines
The same old tricks and the same old rhymes
Days precious days
Roll in and out like waves
I got boards to bend I got planks to nail
I got charts to make I got seas to sail

I'm going to build me a boat
With these two hands
It will be a fair curve
From a noble plan
Let the chips fall where they will
Because I've got boats to build

[Verse 2]
Sails are just like wings
The wind can make them sing
Songs of life songs of hope
Songs to keep your dreams afloat


[Verse 3]
Shores distant shores
There's where I'm headed for
Got the stars to guide my way
Sail into the light of day
