Boats To Build

by Guy Clark

from the album License to Chill


Lyrics

(Jimmy)
It’s time for a change
I’m tired of that same ol same
The same ol words the same ol lines
The same ol tricks and the same ol rhymes

(Alan Jackson)
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 gonna build me a boat
With these two hands
It’ll be a fair curve
From a noble plan
Let the chips fall where they will
Cause I’ve got boats to build

(Jimmy)
Sails are just like wings
The wind can make em sing
(Alan)
Songs of life songs of hope
Songs to keep your dreams afloat

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

(Jimmy)
Shores distant shores
There’s where I’m headed for
(Alan)
Got the stars to guide my way
Sail into the light of day

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