Boat Slip 33… a song

Frustrated Depression Man In The Hood Sitting On Wooden Bridge,

BOAT SLIP 33

She kissed him one more time

Then she stepped back onto the dock.

And then she stood and watched him pull the boat away.

And that uneasy feeling

She had many times before…

Was worse this time than any other day…

 

And she stands there…

At boat slip 33…

And she watches…

As he goes back out to sea.

And she prays the prayer

She’s prayed many times before…

Keep him safe there out at sea

Bring him here, back home to me

I’m waiting – boat slip 33, please Lord.

 

The front moved in and the weather changed

The radios were down.

And the newsman from the station

Said a boat was sunk and all had drowned.

The fear she had returned to her

She dropped down to her knees.

And prayed the prayer she prayed before

For boat slip 33…

 

And she stands there…

At boat slip 33…

And she watches…

As he goes back out to sea.

And she prays the prayer

She’s prayed many times before…

Keep him safe there out at sea

Bring him here, back home to me

I’m waiting – boat slip 33, please Lord.

 

She cried herself to sleep

Sitting alone there on the couch.

The nightmare of her dreams, it had come true.

A ringing in the distance

And the clock – 3:33

He was on the phone

And said he’d be home soon…

 

And she stands there…

At boat slip 33…

And she watches…

As he goes back out to sea.

And she prays the prayer

She’s prayed many times before…

Keep him safe there out at sea

Bring him here, back home to me

I’m waiting – boat slip 33, Oh…

Keep him safe there out at sea

Bring him here, back home to me

I’m waiting – boat slip 33, please Lord.
