BOATMAN (Livingston Taylor / Maggie Taylor) Recorded by: James Taylor; Livingston Taylor. Hearts were exploding around us As we drifted south down the bay The gray up above and gray down below Left us with nothing to say So we drifted along in silence 'Til the tickle of life trickled in And the rhythm began in the hiss of the sand We were catching fire again CHORUS: Oh boatman, I am the river I am the mountain and the sea Oh boatman, taker and giver Can you deliver me I would forever run free Yeah we finally caught up with legends We were walking along side by side We worked out a plan To go out hand in hand But the long trail just wasn't that wide The water around us was freezing We just laughed and threw ourselves in And although we were old The sting of that cold Pumped up the feeling, here it is again REPEAT CHORUS Oh I'm a message in a bottle Drifting along on a deep blue sea Waiting for some foreign shore Ready for something to be No longer afraid of falling We cut the strings to the sky We found level ground And we put ourselves down Amazing we all didnšt die We took each moment as given By second by second they came The ice and the sun and the thundering guns Good God I was finally sane REPEAT CHORUS
