Nick Cave – I Rowed A Little Boat lyrics

John Lee Hooker - Vocal, Acoustic Guitar (Orpheum Music, 1959)

A traditional song similar to My Little Boat Is Empty. Nick's song is also available.

You know I rowed a little boat,
Five miles 'cross the pond
You know I rowed a little boat,
'bout five miles 'cross the pond
I throwed my things in the little boat,
It rolled me right along


It was thunderin' and lightenin',
But it rolled me right along
It was thunderin', it was lightenin',
Oh yeah, it rolled me right along
There were thousands of people,
They didn't have no place to go, mmm


Little children they were screamin'
And cryin', Oh yeah
The wind was howlin',
They didn't have no place to go, mmm
There were thousands o' people,
They's goin' from door to door, mmm


My little boat kept rollin',
It kept on rollin',
You know it rolled me right along
Mmm-mmm, Kept on rollin,
Kept on rollin' Kept on rollin'
Kept on rollin', Rollin'
