If I Could Get Me A Boat

Got my hand on the bible mirrors never lie
one look and its liable to make me cry
the lines in my forehead got a story to tell
and the way that they got there i know too damn well

Take me there honey won't you take me there

When I’m out on the water my cares disappear
magically it seems to wash away the years
i feel so good when i’m out there afloat
I’d die a younger man if I could get me a boat

no Sunday golf or the NFL
that box of balls can just stay on the shelf
got wind on my shoulder and salt in my blood
The sea is a healer like some miracle drug

Take me there honey won't you take me there

When I’m out on the water my cares disappear
magically it seems to wash away the years
i feel so good when i’m out there afloat
I’d die a younger man if I could get me a boat

When I’m out on the water my cares disappear
magically it seems to wash away the years
i feel so good when i’m out there afloat
I’d die a younger man if I could get me a boat

Nice little tune there, Tommy. Love the lyrics and I'm assuming you're playing the lead guitar fills. You're Tele? Nice mix and arrangement. Keep 'em coming.

Hello, Tom

Very simple but powerful song!
The intro's guitar phrase that comes out several times is very catchy.
Your vocal is superb as usual.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Good luck on the contest!
Best regards.

Now there are over 2,900 RealTracks available in RealTracks Sets 1-352! Get them ALL with every Band-in-a-Box® 2020 UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, or Audiophile Edition.
