The Ballad Of Laverne And Captain Flint Lyrics

The Ballad Of Laverne And Captain Flint - Guy Clark

Here comes Martha runnin' down the pier

Looks like Captain Flint is here

You get the bow and I get the stern

Lord would you look at that Laverne

Old Flint's got shrimp from the deep blue sea

And buckets of fish for you and me

 

Old Flint's boat is fine and she's called the Miss-Inclined

And there's no home port painted on her stern

And they say she's like a ghost up and down that Texas coast

But you saw him didn't you Laverne

 

Daddy says Flint is a weird old bird

And what's more I have heard

That his nets are charmed by a woman who knew

How to work that Louisiana voo-doo

Laverne get away from that boat you hear

Your mama don't want you hangin' round here

 

Old Flint's boat is fine and she's called the Miss-Inclined

And there's no home port painted on her stern

And they say she's like a ghost up and down that Texas coast

But you saw him didn't you Laverne

 

Martha Martha won't you tell me please

That it's not Laverne that I see

There on the deck of the Miss-Inclined

With Captain Flint I must be blind

Laverne girl what's the matter with you

Old Captain Flint put a spell on you

 

Old Flint's boat is fine and she's called the Miss-Inclined

And there's no home port painted on her stern

And they say she's like a ghost up and down that Texas coast

But you saw him didn't you Laverne

 

Old Flint's boat is fine and she's called the Miss-Inclined

And there's no home port painted on her stern

And they say she's like a ghost up and down that Texas coast

 

But you saw him didn't you Laverne
