Ol' Joe's got a Boston whaler
He bought in Key Biscane
He swears since the day he's got her
She's been nothing but a pain
When the sun's at his back
And the winds in his face
It's just him and the wheel
He wouldn't take a million for the
Way it makes him feel

[Chorus]
Boats
Vessels of freedom
Harbors of heeling
Boats

Newport is where John hung his hat
Til he lost his wife Jo
Now forty feet of sail antique
Is where Ol' John calls home
He watched his life pass before his eyes
In the middle of a hurricane
Came out alive on the other side
That's where "the other side" got its name

[Chorus]

Twenty years of a landlocked job
Was all that tom could take
Sitting at his desk
All alone and depressed
Says this just cant be my fate
Went home that night and told his wife
You can tell all of your friends
It's been real but it ain't been fun
Gonna get us one of them

[Chorus]

Vessels of freedom
Boats
