A Night On Natchez Queen - Poem by A. P. Hancock

Let's ride the Natchez Queen tonight, and pass a good ol time
That paddlewheel can soothe your soul, and make your spirit climb

We'll start with dining on the deck, and have a royal feast
We'll stuff ourselves with shrimp and trout, until we need a priest

We'll stroll along outside a while, and wish upon the stars
We'll wish a wish, a secret wish, a wish that's only ours

We'll hear the band begin to start, a tune that moves our feet
We'll make our way out on the floor, and dance to rhythms sweet

We'll sit and watch the river roll, and think about our days
We'll reminisce, we'll laugh and cry, and view our lives as plays

We'll end our trip with smiles and hugs, and talk of all we've seen
We'll thank those stars we wished upon, for a night on Natchez Queen
