Boats to Build
by Alan Jackson



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

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
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
Shores distant shores

There's where I'm headed for
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
'Cause I've got boats to build
