Bass Boat Song Lyrics

[Verse 1: Zach Bryan]
My old man bought a big bass boat
When I think of that summer of hope, I choke
'Cause even if we didn't catch a little bit of something
We'd park that boat by the bluff at the Days Inn

[Verse 2: Zach Bryan]
I got a need to find trouble when things are alright
I pine for pain in the morning light
And even with my baby sitting next to me
I'm a self-sabotaging suicide machine

[Chorus: Zach Bryan]
And you're going, going, going
'Til the Lord calls you home in
Your work boots and your worn coveralls
And you'll show them, show them, show them
With your high collateral loan on
That home where your children play with dolls

[Verse 3: Zach Bryan]
'Cause I was raised by a woman who was hardly impressed
And I carry that sh!t real deep in my chest
'Cause I ain't ever been one for cheap excuses
And apologies have always been a little late or useless
But if you give me four minutes and a little bit of time
I'll make them old days an old friend of mine
And I can talk to God and I can pray all day
But you can't heal something that you never raised

[Chorus: Zach Bryan]
And you're going, going, going
On Thanksgiving day when
You're sneaking off to drink some alcohol
And you'll show them, show them, show them
While you're kissing all the knees of
Every scrape and every bloody fall

[Outro: Zach Bryan]
My old man bought a big bass boat
When I think of that summer of hope, I choke
'Cause even if we didn't catch a little bit of something
We'd park that boat by the bluff at the day's end
