Just like the song John Fogerty sings, this Southern Marsh Born On The Bayou Long Sleeve T Shirt is stylish, cool and comfortable. This 100% lightweight cotton pocket T Shirt is a full color garment washed shirt. The highlight of this shirt is the large graphic on the back of an old paddle wheel riverboat down on the bayou! The Born on the Bayou Tee also has a standard crew neckline and regular fit. This is the perfect tee for an casual evening out with friends or a walk along the river on a warm day.
The paddle wheel riverboat was the first ship designed for inland navigation and quickly became renowned for its ability to carry large amounts of weight in shallow water. The Riverboats low draft and wide construction allowed them to be turned into floating hotels and casinos for recreation and were especially popular during the days of prohibition. As industrialization progressed their range became more and more limited as the tall smoke stacks on the boats prevented them from crossing most of the bridges being built throughout the country. The boats that have survived the times usually sit permanently docked on the coastlines of rivers throughout the country.
