Old Dominion dropped a brand new, carefree summer jam, “I Was On a Boat That Day”. Available now, May 21st, on all streaming platforms, take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new song.
It’s been a little while since we’ve heard new music from the Old Dominion, but they’re back with a perfect carefree summer jam. “I Was on a Boat That Day” is all about letting loose of all of life’s responsibilities and not worrying about anything but having a good time.
The song paints a picture of the subject going through a breakup, but instead of dwelling on the situation, they are just living carefree in the moment and taking their mind off of things by enjoying themselves on a boat. Who doesn’t love a good boat day? There are no broken hearts here, as the subject is not worried about anything else like what may have happened yesterday or what the future might hold. They have friends, perfect weather, the water, a boat, and drinks to enjoy. Isn’t that where we’d all rather be right now!?
“Is she gone for the summer? // gone for the night? // gone for the weekend or the rest of my life? // was she laughing? was she crying as she walked away? // I can’t say, I was on a boat that day // The river was rollin’ // I was getting my float on / She was telling me so long // I was already so long gone”
