Skip A Stone

 

Makin' matters all over in mind

A patiently thinkin' 'bout a future behind

Reelin' times inside one split second

Don't cut off your arm boy an' 'spect to skip a stone

 

Castin' muscles he's never seen

A fisherman's season and a young boy's dream

Tyin' knots lord he needs to know

Don't cut off your arm boy an' 'spect to skip a stone

 

            Stand up son you're rockin' the boat

            Get up off the edge of alone

            Find a good spot, use some good reckon

            Don't cut off your arm boy an' 'spect to skip a stone

 

Poundin' bridges he's never been

A livelihood ringin' in a young girl's dreams

Grindin' spit Lord we all need to know

Don't cut off your arm boy an' 'spect to skip a stone

 

            Stand up son you're rockin' the boat

            Get up off the edge of alone

            Find a good spot, use some good reckon

            Don't cut off your arm boy an' 'spect to skip a stone

 

(Repeat Chorus)
