Boat in the Water


D Let's get this boat in the water Em With the oars where they oughta; A D We'll roll down this river to the sea. We'll sail off in the sunset Em To some place we ain't been yet, A D Just to say that we've been there, you and me. A D G There are islands in the ocean D You can't reach except by boatin', A Where the coconuts and mangos fall from trees. G On the beaches soft as cotton, D All your troubles soon forgotten; A You can toss 'em up, loose 'em in the breeze.

Let's get this boat in the water
With the oars where they oughta;
We'll roll down this river to the sea.
We'll sail off in the sunset
To some place we ain't been yet,
Just to say that we've been there, you and me.


D Em A D D Em A D G D If we never make it back, hell, we won't care, A Just as long as we can say that we've been there.

If we want to see some more of,
We can sail to Bora Bora
Where they say the fish are bitin' there all day,
And the natives one supposes
Run around without their clothes -
You can feel your inhibitions slip away.

Let's get this boat in the water
With the oars where they oughta;
We'll roll down this river to the sea.
We'll sail off in the sunset
To some place we ain't been yet,
Just to say that we've been there, you and me.
Oh, we can say that we've been there, you and me.

(Words and music by Tom Paxton, 2016)
