Jeff Bridges – Slow Boat lyrics
The river is wide
Deeper than deep
On one side they're cryin'
On the other they're asleep

And it's all a dream
Least it seems like to me
Might never wake up
Listen to the steam

As the big wheel turns
Are we headed up stream?
The fog's too thick
To really see

All I know is I still float
Slow boat
Slow boat
I got my coat

I brought my chaps
In case we land
I'm gonna need 'em for that
'Cause there might he a horse

I might need to ride
Carry your message
Carry the flag
To where we're goin'

Or am I goin' alone
Are you there
Pick up the phone
I can't make out what you wrote

Slow boat
Slow boat
All I know is I still float
All I know

I don't know
