The Ballad of Laverne and Captain Flint  Guy Clark

Intro - E F#m E F#m
[E]Here comes Martha runnin' [F#m]down the pier
Lord it looks[A] like Captain [D]Flint is [A]here
[E]You get the bow, [F#m]I get the stern
[A]Lord would you look at t[D]hat L[A]averne
[E]Flint's got shrimp from the d[B7]eep blue sea.
and [A]buckets of fish for [E]you and me[F#m] [E] [F#m]
E E6 (shuffle)
But Old Flint's boat is fine and she's called the Miss-Inclined
And there's no home port [B7]painted on her s[E]tern[F#m]
E E6 (shuffle)
And they say she's like a ghost up and down that Texas coast
But you saw home di[B7]dn't you Lavern[E]e?[F#m] [E] [F#m]
[E]Daddy says Flint is a [F#m]weird old bird
And [A]what's more [D]I have h[A]eard
That his [E]nets are charmed by a w[F#m]oman who knew
How to w[A]ork that Louisi[D]ana voo-d[A]oo
[E]Laverne get away from that [B7]boat you hear
your [A]mama don't want you h[E]angin' round h[F#m]ere[E] [F#m]
