Actually, it's "If I had a Boat"! When I saw Lyle in concert last October
(the same week he was on the cover of National Enquirer), I was surprised
to see him play this song with the capo so far up the neck, like the 8th
or 9th fret, but it sure made the playing of the song easier!  Check it
out -- in open 'G' fingering, capo on 7th, 8th or 9th fret:

 C  C/Bbass G        C     C/Bbass  G
If I had a boat, I'd go out on the ocean
    C   C/Bbass G         C/Ebass       D/F#bass
And if I had a pony, I'd ride him on my boat       (this first 'verse'
    C      C/Bbass  G      C     C/Bbass G           turns out to be
And we could all together, go out on the ocean        the CHORUS)
     G         D/F#bass     G
Just me upon my pony on my boat


    G                          C   C/Bbass    G
And if I were Roy Rogers, I'd sure enough be single
            G                           D/F#bass
I couldn't bring myself to marryin' old Dale
      G                             C     C/Bbass       G
It'd just be me & Trigger; we'd go ridin' through them movies
          G            D/F#bass
And we'd buy a boat and on the sea we'd sail

  (CHORUS)

Well, the mystery masked man was smart, he got himself a Tonto
Cuz Tonto did the dirty work for free
But Tonto, he was smarter, and one day said Kemosabe
You can kiss my ass, I bought a boat, I'm headed out to sea

  (CHORUS)

(instrumental break)

And if I were like light'ning, I wouldn't need no sneakers
Well, I'd come and go whenever I would please
And I'd scare 'em by the shady tree, 'n scare 'em by the light pole
But I would not scare my pony on my boat out on the sea

  (CHORUS)

     G          D/F#bass    G   C G D G
Just me upon my pony on my boat
