Sea Songs: Gonna Build Me A Boat

Have you ever listened to a song that left you with an urging sensation to do something very challenging? That's what the original version of Boats to Build did for me the first time I heard it... Not the tropicalized cover by Jimmy Buffett, which makes me want to sit on a hammock and drink a boat drink the way most Jimmy Buffett songs do, but the original version by songwriters Guy Clark and Verlon Thompson.

Have a listen, and if you start feeling an urge to actually go out and build your own boat, don't say I didn't warn you!
