Sailboat For Sail
Written by: Toby Keith / Bobby Pinson
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: 35 MPH Town (2015)

Lyrics:
I’m floating in my boat
Not the one I used to fish in
But the boat I sit in wishin’
I was still floating on my fishing boat
And I’m out here on this river
Really it’s just a creek
But it’s a river when I drink
So I’m drinking on my river boat
I could sail to the ocean
If the wind would come and get me
But I aint goin nowhere quickly
I’m just a drunkin sailor
Waiting on a gale
With a drink in my hand and a sailboat for sale
(vocals)
An old pirate sold me on a
We traded straigh across
The boat I thought I wanted
For the boat I hate I lost
She’ll sing when that wind whistles
When it doesn’t, well she don’t
Just ask that old pirate
That’s floatin on my river boat
I could sail to the ocean
If the wind would come and get me
But I aint goin nowhere quickly
I’m just a drunkin sailor
Waiting on a gale
With a drink in my hand and a sailboat for sale
Never make a handshake deal while sharing someone bottle
Never buy a boat son that doesn’t have a throttle
(vocals)
I could sail to the ocean
If the wind would come and get me
But I aint goin nowhere quickly
I’m just a drunkin sailor
Waiting on a gale
With a drink in my hand and a sailboat for sale
I got a sailboat for sale
(vocals)
