I never was a sailor
My father drove a Volvo
Across the sands and far away

And if you come to see me,
I’ll be out on my fishing boat
Row away my fishing boat.

Oh there was a time when
I swore I'd sail the seas
But growing up has change me
From the man I thought I'd be
From white sails to gasoline

I've seen Vermont in the morning,
Waking like a lover.
Bright trees and silos.

Gone down to Atlanta
Chasing the ghost of a Volvo
Finding out just what I need
To be my true love’s true love

Across the sands and far away.

My mother told me gently
Don’t reach where you can’t see
And behind that rock was a cottonmouth.
And if I get it all together,
I’ll buy myself a fishing boat
Set out on the delta
The old, old ghost and me.

Row away my fishing boat
