Subject: Lyr/Chords Add: IF I HAD A BOAT (Lyle Lovett)
From: Dave T
Date: 27 Apr 99 - 07:30 AM

I didn't find this in the database. I think I got the HTML formatting OK.
  If I Had A Boat	- Lyle Lovett
(Key = C, Play in G position with Capo on 5th Fret)

Chorus:
Cmaj9 Em7 G6
If I had a boat
Cmaj9 Em7 G6
I'd go out on the ocean
Cmaj9 G6
And if I had a pony
Em D/F# Dsus4 D/F#
I'd ride him on my boat
Cmaj9 Em7 G6
And we would all together
Cmaj9 Em7 G6
Go out on the ocean
Cmaj9 D/F# G6
Me upon my pony on my boat


C G
If I were Roy Rogers
C G
I'd sure enough be single
C G D/F#
I couldn't bring myself to marry no Dale
C G
It'd just be me and Trigger
C G
We'd go riding through them movies
C D/F# G
We'd buy a boat and on the sea we'd sail

(Chorus)

That mystery, masked man was smart
He had himself a Tonto
Tonto did the dirty work for free
But Tonto, he was smarter
One day said, "Kemo Sabe,"
"Kiss my ass I bought a boat, I'm going out to sea"

(Chorus)

And if I were like lightning
I wouldn't wear no sneakers
I'd come and go whenever I would please
And I'd scare 'em by the light pole
And I'd scare 'em by the shade tree
But I would not scare my pony on my boat out on the sea

(Chorus)

Chords:
EADGBe
Cmaj9 x32030
Em7 x20030
G6 320030
D/F# 200232

Sure would like the lyrics and chords to this one. It may still be under copyright, but I just want to pick and sing it for my pleasure.

"If I had a boat, i'd put it on the ocean and If I had a pony, I'd put him on my boat"

Doing a gig the other night someone asked for a song about a boat and a pony. They said it would be a good one for me ( I do sea songs more or less). Does any one know of this song or where it's recorded or what it's called. Thanks Marc Bernier

clicky

If I Had a Boat
(Lyle Lovett)

If I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
Me upon my pony on my boat

If I were Roy Rogers
I'd sure enough be single
I couldn't bring myself to marrying old Dale
It'd just be me and trigger
We'd go riding through them movies
Then we'd buy a boat and on the sea we'd sail

And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
Me upon my pony on my boat

The mystery masked man was smart
He got himself a Tonto
'Cause Tonto did the dirty work for free
But Tonto he was smarter
And one day said kemo sabe
Kiss my ass I bought a boat
I'm going out to sea

And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
Me upon my pony on my boat

And if I were like lightning
I wouldn't need no sneakers
I'd come and go wherever I would please
And I'd scare 'em by the shade tree
And I'd scare 'em by the light pole
But I would not scare my pony on my boat out on the sea

And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
Me upon my pony on my boat

Talking of Lyle Lovett, he did a spot on a Johnny Cash tribute (maybe 12 months ago) called "Tenessee Flat Top Box" and I wonder is this Tribute available on CD/Video?

It also featured Bob Dylan, U2, Willie & Kris, Bruce Springstein (doing "Give my Love to Rose"!)

Would love to get my hands on a recording of the concert

Oh, it also featured Emmylou, but she was singing specially to me, guys!

Always a pleasure to be of assistance. I often sing that song along with another of my favourite LL tunes, "She's No Lady" at open stages etc. If you ever get a chance to go see Lyle Lovett live do so!!! A wonderful performer and another great in a long list of Texas songwriters.

If I Had a Boat by Lyle Lovett

If I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
Me upon my pony on my boat

If I were Roy Rogers
I'd sure enough be single
I couldn't bring myself to marrying old Dale
It'd just be me and trigger
We'd go riding through them movies
Then we'd buy a boat and on the sea we'd sail

And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
Me upon my pony on my boat

The mystery masked man was smart
He got himself a Tonto
'Cause Tonto did the dirty work for free
But Tonto he was smarter
And one day said kemo sabe
Kiss my ass I bought a boat
I'm going out to sea

And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
Me upon my pony on my boat

And if I were like lightning
I wouldn't need no sneakers
I'd come and go wherever I would please
And I'd scare 'em by the shade tree
And I'd scare 'em by the light pole
But I would not scare my pony on my boat out on the sea

And if I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
Me upon my pony on my boat
