Lyrics
Somethin' 'bout a boat
Sittin' on the sea
Out there in the wind
Floatin' on the free
Take you 'round the world
Bring you back home
Gives a man hope
Somethin' 'bout a boat

Somethin' 'bout an old guitar
And the way it still sings
After all the smokey bars
And the broken strings
Played a million songs
Broke a lot of hearts
Made some people stars
Somethin' 'bout an old guitar

Ain't it crazy how somethin'
Seems like nothin' at all
Take a big old room
Make it seem so small
Seein' windows where there are walls
Makes a whole lot of something
Out of nothin' at all

Somethin' 'bout your dog
Sittin' by your side
If you had a bad day
She ain't gonna run and hide
Just a-waggin' that tail
Grinnin' that grin
Somethin' 'bout my dog
Makes her my best friend

Ain't it crazy how somethin'
Seems like nothin' at all
Take a big old room
Make it seem so small
Seein' windows where there are walls
Makes a whole lot of something
Out of nothin' at all

Makes a whole lot of something
Out of nothin' at all

Somethin' 'bout a dog
Somethin' 'bout an old guitar
Somethin' 'bout a boat
That gives a man hope
