Townes Van Zandt Lyrics


            
                  HEAVENLY HOUSEBOAT BLUES
              	      Townes Van Zandt &
                        Susanna Clark

Capo 2, and just three chords: E, A, B7

CHORUS
E                           A
I'm building a houseboat in heaven
    B7                       E
to sail those deep and holy seas
E                           A
I'm building a houseboat in heaven
          B7                       E
and it's welcome aboard you sweet peace

VERSE 1
The bow she is made of solid silver
and the hall she is made of solid gold
she ain't much long the line's a-floating
but she's yours, babe, to have and to hold

CHORUS

I rode my old guitar to heaven but heaven didn't feel too much like home so I'm headed out on to them lonesome oceans in my ruby-studded houseboat to roam CHORUS
