  • (Yeah, one, two, one, two, I'm talkin' to you)

    I remember it like it was yesterday
    'Cause it was
    And I was lettin' the sun and the rum
    Just do what it does

    I threw my phone in the water
    Little push off the dock
    She was packin' her bags
    I was poppin' a top

    Is she gone for the summer, gone for the night
    Gone for the weekend or the rest of my life
    Was she laughin', was she cryin' as she walked away
    I can't say
    I was on a boat that day

    The river was rollin'
    I was getting my float on
    She was tellin' me so long
    I was already so long gone

    Yeah, aye

    She could've been halfway to Houston but I didn't care
    I was drunk as a skunk eatin' lunch with a cross-eyed bear
    You've been there

    Yeah, she was lookin' for something
    Better than me
    I was lookin' for nothin'
    Just ridin' the breeze

    Is she gone for the summer, gone for the night
    Gone for the weekend or the rest of my life
    Was she laughin', was she cryin' as she walked away
    I can't say
    I was on a boat that day

    The river was rollin'
    I was getting my float on
    She was tellin' me so long
    I was already so long gone

    Yeah, aye, aye

    I remember it like it was yesterday
    'Cause it was
    And I still got a buzz

    Is she gone for the summer, gone for the night
    Gone for the weekend or the rest of my life
    Was she laughin', was she cryin' as she walked away
    I can't say
    I was on a boat that day

    The river was rollin'
    I was getting my float on
    She was tellin' me so long
    I was on a boat that day

    The river was rollin'
    I was getting my float on
    She was tellin' me so long
    I was on a boat that day

    Ah, hey, hey, hey (ah, hey, hey, hey)
    I was on a boat that day
    Hey, hey, hey Writer/s: Brad Tursi, Geoff Sprung, Josh Osborne, Matthew Thomas Ramsey, Shane Mcanally, Trevor Rosen, Whit Sellers
