I went a backassed way to Berkley
When I rode the Westport Ferry
I should've known it would change my life
When I rode the Westport Ferry
What did I do aboard the boat,
On the Westport Ferry
I wrapped warm bodies in plastic wrap
On the Westport Ferry
The current is mighty and the channel is steep
Around the Westport Ferry
Think of how many brilliant men were lost in that murky deep
Around the Westport Ferry
I will float again
When they're done dredging
That stubborn crowd won't disperse
'Til that barge becomes a hearse

    My OpinionThese lyrics were written by Vic Chesnutt, with Widespread Panic as the house band.

    I was thinking tonight it may be about the Titanic - boat was moving West when it struck an iceberg.
