Cheseapeake Gold CHESEAPEAKE GOLD Bill Desler 1. Setting out to sea in the big white boat We've gone each week for years Setting out in style from Baltimore Past the old wooden piers. Chorus: Sail on small wooden boats, Diggin' for Cheseapeake Gold, Sail on big white boat, The one they say is too old... 2. Past Fells Point and Federal Hill To the ocean we will go Pausing at the bridge at Sparrow's Point To watch the barges tow 3. On the upper deck in the morning sun Playing cards to past the time Chasing all the young folks first time out From the place that has always been mine. 4. Dancing to a tune by a band I know From summertime trips before Waltzing in the arms of a girl I've met Across the old wooden floor. Written about the Cheseapeake pleasure boats that were going to be discontinued. Have since been rescued. Recorded by Bill Destler as part of Rock Creek on their tape. DC
