Noah Gundersen – Boathouse lyrics

Boathouse, coming down the river
Boathouse, carrying my son
Boathouse, carrying his mother
You know she's the only one
Caroline, my heart is aching
But I can't quit this time
And Caroline, my heartless drinking
I can't quit this time
So go on and wave goodbye
Haul out, get packing up your suitcase
Haul out, crying like the rain
Haul out, screaming, "This ain't living!"
And I know you're right
Caroline, I've been wondering
Why you didn't pick a better man
Caroline, my Mona Lisa still
Can't match your smile
So go on, wave goodbye
Boathouse, coming down the river
Boathouse, carrying my love
Boathouse, carry them to safety
Out from the Mississippi mud
Where I lost my love
