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:
