From the recording Twice Around the World


Rusty old river, rusty old boat
This rusty old love won't keep us afloat
Rusty chains, won't take the strain
But they've got me by the throat

I'm gonna put my cards on the table
One-eyed jacks are wild
I'm gonna take you in my arms and squeeze you tight
To see you eye to eye
Take it smooth, take it rough, i've had enough of this lukewarm stuff
I want to see the tears running down your face
I want to see you cry when I say - goodbye

Rusty old river, rusty old boat
It's so sad just to look at you both
I remember the day we met
The rain came down, our hair was wet
And your hands they felt so cold
