Zac Brown Band, “Same Boat” Lyrics:

We’re all in the same boat / We fish in the same holes / We wonder where the same time is going / We’re all in the same boat…

We could all believe what we believe / And peacefully agree to disagree / But you can’t judge a man until you’ve walked a mile of country in his shoes…


We’re all in this together / We fish in the same holes / We wonder where the same time goes / And so does the money / I’m trying to mend the same broken hearts / Wish for the same stars / We all hope ‘l hope floats / And we’re all in the same boat…

We’ve all been hit and knocked down / But you won’t keep a good man / You can run away from your mistakes / But you can’t hide from your truth…

Repeat the chorus

Share them beaches if you hold / Take these pics and keep charging / If you can’t be nice / Say nothing at all / So help someone who might be in trouble / Spread some love, I gotta give something back / If the ship keeps rocking / We’ll all go too far…

Repeat the chorus

Yeah, we all hope hope floats / We’re all in this together…
