"The Jamestown Ferry" lyrics

The Jamestown Ferry

He just caught the Jamestown ferry
It's not a hot day in January
Like he said it'd be
If he ever left me
A case of gone was all he carried
As he got on the Jamestown ferry
And he said that gone
Was all he'd ever need

I din't think that he'd leave me
After seeing how much he needs me
But the fact still remains
I'm sitting here all alone
Missing a loving of my baby
Lord it's about to drive me crazy
He was the sweetest piece of heaven
I've ever known

He just caught the Jamestown ferry
It's not a hot day in January
Like he said it'd be
If he ever left me
A case of gone was all he carried
As he got on the Jamestown ferry
And he said that gone
Was all he'd ever need

As I walk through his kingdom
Of honky tonks and bars
I remember how he'd hold me
And comfort me with talk
He didn't cuss with every breath
He had a soothing Southern Drawl
Made me feel like a lady
Through it all

He just caught the Jamestown ferry
It's not a hot day in January
Like he said it'd be
If he ever left me
A case of gone was all he carried
As he got on the Jamestown ferry
And he said that gone
Was all he'd ever need

He just caught the Jamestown ferry
It's not a hot day in January
Like he said it'd be
If he ever left me
A case of gone was all he carried
