This is one of my favorite songs. I never skip it when it comes up on my massive iTunes shuffle and I find myself singing it from time to time for no reason. I love Lyle Lovett. People can say what they want, but I think he's so underrated as a song-writer and a performer. (Saw him at SXSW and it was great.) Dave Matthews covered this song, which people may have heard as well.. "If I Had A Boat" came out on the "Pontiac" album, his second.
