Old Joelene Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I built a riverboat for you, and called her Old Joelene for you.
And I sat in the bough of the boat and waited for a sign from you.
But the water said it could not find you.
You didn't come through.
Verse 2
Hah hoe hah hoe hoe hah hoe hoe hah hoe hoe
Old Joelene, where could he be?
Verse 3
I built a water fall for you, and like a toad with a golden ball for you,
I sat in the bough of that boat and I waited for a sign from you.
But the water said it could not find you.
You didn't come through.
Verse 4
Hah hoe hah hoe hoe hah hoe hoe haoh
Old Joelene, where could he be?
Old Joelene, where is he?
Verse 5
Down a river made from dust and dew, towards a country
Once rich and rare and blue,
I sat in the bough of that boat and scattered all of my parts from you.
Here comes my home, my hearts, my crew.
So adieu to you.
