The Lyrics

One of the earliest recordings by these bluegrass legends. A cautionary tale wherein the hills of North Carolina meet head-on the caprices of the north Atlantic via one reckless adolescent.

Take me in your speedboat
Oh take me in your speedboat
I want thrills above the norm
Take me in your speedboat
Oh, take me in your speedboat
I can't bear my boring life at home.

Now come, mister mister
Your promises keep
We'll play night and day
We got no time for sleep
My father and mother
Can just go to hell
Oh brother won't you
Take me in your speedboat

Take me in your speedboat
Oh take me in your speedboat
Don't care 'bout the ragin' storm
Take me in your speedboat
Oh, take me in your speedboat
You don't know what's goin' on at home

The clouds are so heavy
The winds they're so loud
The big waves are rollin'
Now I don't feel so proud
I hung out in the fast lane
Oh what have I done?
Now I'm gonna die here
In your speedboat
