SAME OLD BOAT (Jack Wallace / Benny Barnes) George Jones - 1969 Well my Great-Grandpappy he fought for Texas At the Battle Of The Alamo Ol' Jim Bowie and Davy Crockett Were friends of my Pappy's, I know Colonel Travis asked who's gonna lick 'em with me Not a coward crossed the line My Pappy turned to Davy with a friendly little poke And this is what he said, I quote Well we didn't come over on the same old ship But we're all in the same old boat The only thing that bothers me now Is it gonna sink or float I don't mind dyin' for my country The only thing that gets my goat We didn't come over on the same old shipp But we're all in the same old boat Well my Daddy was a fireman on the Wabash Line Casey was the engineer Those eight-wheel drivers sang a lullaby Just like music to my ear Goin' ninety miles an hour down a long steep grade And the brakes just started givin' out Casey lost his nerve approachin' Devil's Curve And this is what we heard him shout Well we didn't come over on the same old ship But we're all in the same old boat The only thing that bothers me now Is it gonna sink or float Well I don't mind dyin' in the line o' duty The only thing that gets my goat We didn't come over on the same old ship But we're all in the same old boat No, we didn't come over on the same old ship But we're all in the same old boat (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2012)
