Boats Have Bones
lyrics and melody by Cat Faber 2011

mp3 and pdf sheet music

            Dm             Bb
Boats have bones, did you know?
             Dm          A
They last forever, even though
         Dm     Gm       Dm       Am
They're gone before the building ends;
Dm     C          Bb     Am  Dm
Every wood strip twists and bends.


Boats have bones, take good care
Keels be straight and curves be fair.
How we start constrains our ends;
Every wood strip twists and bends

Boats have bones, no mistake
Can be hidden from the lake;
Hull and water must be friends.
Every wood strip twists and bends

Boats have bones, these are mine
From design and re-design,
Miscalculations and amends...
Every wood strip twists and bends.

Boats have bones; through this lens
Gauge the time your setup spends.
From perfection practice tends;
Every wood strip twists and bends.

(repeat 1st verse)
