Lyrics

She was Hurt by her only Man
So she spilt for the Yucatan
Once upon a long time ago
Oh how the winds of fate can blow

Early Morning Reelin’ line
Dreadin’ that ‘ole 5 to 9
Early Morning at the Pier
I saw her there all in Tears

What is your Story Lonely one
Running away and not the only one

‘Cause i’ve known love to cause some pain
Where In the Same Boat, Same Boat
Livin Here and I’ve Lend my Name
Cause it seems to Me where in the Same Boat
Ohhh, Same Boat

Gentle words convince the girl
To take a ride in this sailor’s world
Chasin’ stars like the old Maji
An endless ocean lullaby

Anchored off of Big Whale Kay
She told her tell in the Passage Way
She had me down to a T
Scary Similarities

Standing Breathless face to face
The inevitable was taking place

‘Cause i’ve known love but not like this
Where In the Same Boat, Same Boat
I Fell forever in your kiss
‘Cause it seems to Me where in the Same Boat
Ohhh, Same Boat

Navigating us back home
You’ll never have to steer alone, Again

Riding on the old Trade Winds
In the Same Boat, Same Boat
Finally our Ships came in
‘Cause it seems to Me where in the Same Boat
Ohhh, Same Boat

Repeat chorus
