Let's trade these blues for some silver, and that silver for some gold
We'll spend it all in one place never really did what we were told
Got the police chasing after us and the bartender wants our heads
If we make it out of this town alive then to hell with what they said.
On a ship back to our hometown, to that Erie lake
Where the women they are so cruel my lord for heavens sake
These waves they be too dangerous, that's what he shouted loud
Then get off this boat because we're bound to drown, you know this ship's going down.
If the Erie winds won't blow, take to the oars
Perch don't bite, steer further north
Shallow pockets just gamble a little more
Win or lose, drinking till were on the floor
