Are all leaky, lonely, and driftin', just like me...

Way back when (which, as I understand it, is just a weird way of saying a while ago), I used to showcase music I love on Fridays.

So today, I decided to continue that theme...from months ago. Because you know, I love a good trend.

Anyway, today's song is "Leaky Little Boat" by Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers.

I was introduced to this band by my older sister, Rachel and this was the first song she played for me. While I'm not the biggest fan of the band (because my sister would probably take that title) I really do like them. AND I'm seeing them tonight when they're in Denver.

And OH MY GOSH. The drummer for the opening act? He's the one that I went on a date back in January and wrote about HERE. So yeah. I don't think that there's much risk that that guy will see me, but eesh.

Anyway, without further ado, here is "Leaky Little Boat."



I awake from a long, deep sleep
In a leaky little boat on a wide blue sea
I spy no island, rock or shore
And the sea, she's a-comin' to me through a hole in the floor

And the tide come in and the tide go out
And the waves they come an' knock my little boat about
And the sky turn black and the sky turn blue
I got no pail, no sail, no anchor, too
Just a leaky little boat

And as I wake I look around
I have no notion where I'm bound
So many different colored boats I see
Are all leaky, lonely, and driftin'
Just like me

And the tide come in and the tide go out
And the waves they come an' knock my little boat about
And the sky turn black and the sky turn blue
I got no pail, no sail, no anchor, too
Just a leaky little boat

I spy no island, rock, or shore
I spy no island, rock, or shore
I spy no island, rock, or shore
And the sea keeps a-comin' to me through a hole in the floor
In my leaky little boat

In my leaky little boat

Alone, adrift together are we
Slowly sinkin' in a deep blue sea
But we smile and we wave
And we say, "I'm afraid...and I love you...and here we go..."

And the tide come in and the tide go out
And the waves they come an' toss my little boat about
And the sky turn black and the sky turn blue
I got no pail, no sail, no anchor, too
Just a leaky little boat

Just a leaky little boat

It was great to see you last night! Sorry I didn't see you after the show, I left early because my ankle was killing me. Thanks for spreading the Peacemaker word through your blog!
