Unknown soldier rolling boulder
Dusty eyes and ancient skies, unfolding
Restless nomad waits for no man
Sun beats down on the crown of his forehead
Long black trail from the foothills
Watch the clouds driftin over, sleepy mountains

Take me out, on the heavenly boat that rides the river
Take me out, on the heavenly boat that rides the river

Pots and pans hang upside down in the kitchen
Floating Just like copper planets
Warm bread in a wild winter
Moonlight filters through the curtains in a bedroom
Beaded necklace all rolled up like a coiled snake
That’s still awake on the evening table

Take me out, on the heavenly boat that rides the river
Take me out, on the heavenly boat that rides the river

Western stars like silver spurs
Riding horses of the heavens, through the canyons
Blinking eyes like windshield wipers
Salty tears of mermaids mix into the ocean
My moon sister, I guess I missed her
She was dreaming in the drawing room of space

Take me out, on the heavenly boat that rides the river
Take me out, on the heavenly boat that rides the river
Take me out, on the heavenly boat that rides the river
Take me out, on the heavenly boat that rides the river
Take me out, on the heavenly boat that rides the river
Take me out, on the heavenly boat that rides the river
