    It was painted red the stripe was white
    It was 18 feet from the bow to stern light
    Secondhand from a dealer in Atlanta
    I rode up with daddy when he went there to get her
    We put on a shine, put on a motor
    Built out of love, and made for the water
    Ran her for years, til’ the transom got rotten
    A piece of my childhood will never be forgotten

    It was just an old plywood boat
    With a 75 Johnson with electric choke
    A young boy two hands on the wheel
    I can’t replace the way it made me feel
    And I would turn her sharp
    And I would make it whine
    He’d say, “You can’t beat the way a old wood boat rides”
    Just a little lake cross the Alabama line
    But I was king of the ocean
    When Daddy let me drive
    Best of Alan Jackson:
