Boats To Build

This song is by Jimmy Buffett and Alan Jackson and appears on the live album Live at Texas Stadium (2007) by Alan Jackson, George Strait and Jimmy Buffett.

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
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 and Alan
Sails are just like wings
The wind can make 'em sing
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 and Alan
Shores distant shores
There's where I'm headed for
I 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

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

Jimmy and Alan
'Cause I've got boats to build

Alan: I've got boats to build
Jimmy: I've got boats to build
