BTW Pontiac and his self titled "Lyle Lovett" are two of my favourite albums. I don't go for his later stuff as much but those two were gems.
Also BTW, there is a song by Guy Clark called Boats to Build off the album of the same name. It's another of my favourite boat songs. If you like intelligent country folk roots whatever I'd heartily recommend the album.
It's time for a change
I'm tired of that same ol same
The same ol words the same ol lines
The same ol tricks and the same ol rhymes
Days precious days
Roll in and out like waves
I got boards to bend I got planks to nail
I got charts
to make I got seas to sail
I'm gonna build me a boat
With these two hands
It’ll be a fair curve
From a noble plan
Let the chips fall where they will
Cause I've got boats to build
Sails are just like wings
The wind can make em sing
Songs of life songs of hope
Songs to keep your dreams afloat
Shores distant shores
There’s where I'm headed for
Got the stars to guide my way
Sail into the light of day
