Sweet Hoover Levee

Well the west’s greatest wonder from what I can tell
Is how a god dam like you could ever not sway
I was planted by glory with a half filled reservoir
Sea spilling out off of every creek
 
Sweet Hoover Levee
Tears in my coffee
You never will know
How much I drank
Sweet Hoover Levee
Like the sea through the towers
Dam this whole millpond
For my boat that sank
 
So I drifted on down from the Overton Arm
Across the wide Colorado where the warm waters flow
When I got to Kingman Wash I called out your name
But they said to stay off sixteen on the radio
 
Sweet Hoover Levee
Tears in my coffee
You never will know
How much I drank
Sweet Hoover Levee
Like the sea through the towers
Dam this whole millpond
For my boat that sank
 
Well the thunder’s a rumbling and the tumbleweeds a tumbling
And the radio Nazis are drafting tickets
I’m floating the river for Lake Havasu City
On a raft made of driftwood I’m blowing your way
 
Down over Hoover Levee there’s a stream in the mountains
Where a sea weary skipper drifts into the arms
Of a long distance shipmate then they turn back the hatches
And drink the red wine ‘til the light of the dawn
 
Sweet Hoover Levee
Tears in my coffee
You never will know
How much I drank
Sweet Hoover Levee
Like the sea through the towers
Dam this whole millpond
For my boat that sank
 
Sweet Hoover Levee
Sweet Hoover Levee
