Guy Clark lyrics : "The Ballad Of Laverne And Captain Flint"

Here comes Martha runnin' down the pier
looks like Captain Flint is here
You get the bow and I get the stern

Lord would you look at that Laverne
Old Flint's got shrimp from the deep blue sea
and buckets of fish for you and me


Chorus
Old Flint's boat is fine and she's called the Miss-Inclined

and there's no home port painted on her stern
and they say she's like a ghost up and down that Texas coast
but you saw him didn't you Laverne


Daddy says Flint is a weird old bird
and what's more I have heard

that his nets are charmed by a woman who knew
how to work that Louisiana voo-doo
Laverne get away from that boat you hear

your mama don't want you hangin' round here

Chorus


Martha, Martha won't you tell me please
that it's not Laverne that I see

there on the deck of the Miss-Inclined
with Captain Flint I must be blind
Laverne girl what's the matter with you

old Captain Flint put a spell on you

Chorus
