He just caught the Jamestown Ferry it's not a hot day in January
Like he said it'd be if he ever left me
A case of gone was all he carried as he got on the Jamestown Ferry
And he said that gone was all he'd ever need
I didn't think that he'd leave me after seein' how much he needs me
But the fact still remains I'm sittin' here all alone
Missin' a lovin' of my baby Lord it's bout to drive me crazy
He was the sweetest piece of heaven I've ever known
He just caught the Jamestown Ferry...
As I walk through his kingdom of honky tonks and bars
I remember how he'd hold me and comfort me with talk
He didn't cuss with every breath he had a soothing Southern Drawl
Made me feel like a lady through it all
He just caught the Jamestown Ferry...
He just caught the Jamestown Ferry...
