Safe Water (Carl Jackson)
Mama I won’t drink; I promise I won’t gamble
No matter where I go I’ll keep this vow
That steamboat whistle’s callin’, sayin’ boy, you’re born to ramble
Gonna carry me and my dreams outta town
New York to Cincinnati, Philadelphia to St. Lou
A new town only whets my appetite
So when I run out of river, I’ll sail the ocean blue
‘Til my wanderin’ eyes see Athens by moonlight

Ridin’ on safe water everywhere I roam
Like the constant current, always movin’ on
Safe water
Who knows, someday it might just bring me home

Thirsty for adventure, the world’s become my stage
Reflected in the countless words I write
Every day’s a brand new story, every mile another page
Every port another chapter of my life

Ridin’ on safe water everywhere I roam
Like the constant current always movin’ on
Safe water
Who knows, someday it might just bring me home
Yeah, who knows, someday it might just bring me home
