While Fishing One Day
Somewhere, Sometimes, Someway, Somehow

I could sit and watch the Duty Ferry near Enterprise, La., slowly haul anxious, hurried travelors across the Ouchita River all day.
Sometimes it seems like I'm being sucked along through life
The time trickles on by like I'm an old limb on a river
Just floating along...the river pushing and pulling everything
But I keep coming back to You...I have no other place to go
Sometimes, when I am driving down the road
Or catching catfish at the lake, I think to myself
As I stare up into the clouds, that maybe if I just cry out Your Name
You could hear me, and You could come to me...through the clouds
I'm such a kid...I know that I probably sound insane
Who knows...maybe I am...but I feel what I feel
Talking to You is one of my favorite things to do
Thanks for Your patience with me
