Back to Good Intent lyrics

"Good Intent" - Live From Zone C

I sailed in on the Good Intent
with all intentions clear
a man without a mystery
a vision brought me here
the ocean gave me room to roam
but the shore in calling out
so I will marry, build a home
and see what that's about

Children came by dozens then
drifting south like rain
I work the soil, I use the gun
the waves have turned to grain
I tried to love this Arkansas
with black and bleeding hands
I will not survive this life
but I'll become a man

My brother sold my mother's house
I never shed a tear
I could watch the world in smoke
there's nothing for me here
I've seen behind the darkened veil
and it's all I want to know
so I'll sail off on the Good Intent
to my true happy home
yes I'll sail off on the Good Intent
never more to roam
