"The Big Boat" as written by and Williamson....
My little woman, my little woman
My little woman, she don't believe in me
My little woman, my little woman, yeah
My little woman, she don't believe in me, yeah
Lord, now she left me early this mo'nin'
An' she went down on to Hadley Road

Lord, I believe I'll go ov'are to the drugsto', now
Call my baby up ov'are the telephone
I believe I'll go ov'are to the drugsto'
Call my baby up ov'are the telephone
Now, an' I want you to give me-a central
An' tell me how long has the big boat been gone?

I was standin' at the landin'
Wonderin' what boat, Lord, boys must I ride?
Lord, I was standin' at the landin', yeah
Wonderin' what boat, Lord, boys must I ride
I, since I ain't no hurrin'
I believe I wait 'chere, on the Katy flyin'

Once I was down by the landing
When the big boat, Lord, pull of his load
Once I was down by the landing, n'yeah
A-when the big boat, Lord, pull off his load, understand
Lord, as I been-a hurtin' me to my heart n
I was wonderin' where in the world did my baby go, now?
