Papa, Build Me A Boat
Papa, Build Me A Boat-Dock Boggs
Banjo in gDGBD tuning, Mike Seeger, guitar in G position, standard tuning
Papa, Papa, build me a boat
So upon this river, I can float
Every ship I chance to see
I'll inquire of sweet Willie
"Captain, Captain, tell me true,
Does sweet Willie sail with you?"
"No, oh no, he don't said with me.
He got drownded in the deep blue sea."
I'm a-goin' away, little darling girl
Going away for a while
But I will return to you sweetheart
Should I go ten thousand mile
Stars may rule the ocean, sweetheart,
And the Heavens may cease to be
This Earth will lose its motion, sweetheart,
Should I prove false to thee
