BOATHOUSE (Gordon Lightfoot) As recorded Gordon Lightfoot 1998 Dee dee dee, dee dee dee, dee dee dee dee I would rather be at the boathouse Out of the daily grind I'd sooner be down at the boathouse What a way to unwind. Now I don't want to know How it feels to be set back So I'm leaving here on a one-way track. I'd rather be in mosquito valley Out of my right hand lane You ought to see my mosquito tally All that moves is fair game. Now I don't want to know How it feels not to be loose So I'm leavin' here on the first caboose I'm leavin' here on the first caboose. I can't sleep by a gentle ocean I can't sleep by a waterfall I can't sleep by a lovely river I can't sleep I can't sleep. Dee dee dee, dee dee dee, dee dee dee dee I would rather sleep at the boathouse What more can I say I'd sooner eat down at the boathouse Let it carry me away. Now I don't want to know How it feels to step aside So I'm leavin' here on a wicked ride. Or I could be back at the alehouse With a flagon or two A few blocks south of the jailhouse With a hole in my shoe. Now I don't want to know How it feels to stop a truck So I'm leavin' here and wishin' you good luck I'm leavin' here and wishin' you good luck. I can't sleep by a peaceful ocean I can't sleep by a waterfall I can't sleep by a lovely river I can't sleep, I can't sleep. Dee dee dee, dee dee dee, dee dee dee dee I'd rather be in mosquito valley Keeping spiders in line I'd sooner be down at the boathouse What a way to unwind. Now I don't want to know How it feels not to be loose So I'm leavin' here on the first caboose I'm leavin' here on the first caboose. Dee dee dee, dee dee dee, dee dee dee dee Dee dee dee, dee dee dee, dee dee dee dee Dee dee dee, dee dee dee, dee dee dee dee (Transcribed by David Story - March 2013)
