Cincinnati

You always dreamed we'd build a raft and float on down to Mississippi
Like Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn
It never seemed quite attainable to me but you said
"Baby, let's just start building"
 
But I could never see that far away
And you could never stay that close to me
 
I built a boat and I sailed on down the river
You built a boat, you took it all the way to New Orleans
I built a boat but I got stuck in Cincinnati
Well I'm never going to be your Mississippi queen
 
Well I got a job and I've been working in a little cafe
Overlooking the waters of the Ohio
Sometimes I'd like to hear the blues down on the bayou
Sometimes I think maybe it's my time to go
 
But I could never see that far away
And you could never stay that close to me
 
I built a boat and I sailed on down the river
You built a boat, you took it all the way to New Orleans
I built a boat but I got stuck in Cincinnati
Well I'm never going to be your Mississippi queen
 
I could never live your dreams for you
You could never make mine come true
You sold me a ticket but you never really had me
Cause you know I kind of like Cincinnati
 
I built a boat I got stuck in Cincinnati
Never wanted to be your Mississippi queen
 
Cause you had the dream we'd build a raft and float on down to Mississippi
Like Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn
