Twenty Miles From Shore

Song Author Bob Graves Performer: Hawkshaw Hawkins Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]On a drilling rig twenty [F]miles at sea
The [G7]lights on land are calling [C]me  
I'm way out here twenty [F]miles from shore
I'd [G7]give six months pay for a little [C]pirogue


Well the twenty one days don't seem so long
[G7]I miss Sherrie I [C]wanna go home
I'm way out here twenty [F]miles from shore
I'd [G7]give six months pay for a little [C]pirogue

I'll bet Sherrie's making [F]crawfish pie
[G7]Waiting for me with tears in her [C]eyes
But here I am twenty [F]miles from shore
I'd [G7]give six months pay for a little [C]pirogue


Well the twenty one days don't seem so long
[G7]I miss Sherrie I [C]wanna go home
I'm way out here twenty [F]miles from shore
I'd [G7]give six months pay for a little [C]pirogue


The next boat by going [F]back to land
[G7]I'm gonna leave this rig minus one good [C]hand
I don't like it out here twenty [F]miles from shore
I'd [G7]give six months pay for a little [C]pirogue


Well the twenty one days don't seem so long
[G7]I miss Sherrie I [C]wanna go home
I'm way out here twenty [F]miles from shore
I'd [G7]give six months pay for a little [C]pirogue


On a drilling rig twenty miles at sea
The lights on land are calling me
I'm way out here twenty miles from shore
I'd give six months pay for a little pirogue

Well the twenty one days don't seem so long
I miss Sherrie I wanna go home
I'm way out here twenty miles from shore
I'd give six months pay for a little pirogue

I'll bet Sherrie's making crawfish pie
Waiting for me with tears in her eyes
But here I am twenty miles from shore
I'd give six months pay for a little pirogue

Well the twenty one days don't seem so long
I miss Sherrie I wanna go home
I'm way out here twenty miles from shore
I'd give six months pay for a little pirogue

The next boat by going back to land
I'm gonna leave this rig minus one good hand
I don't like it out here twenty miles from shore
I'd give six months pay for a little pirogue

Well the twenty one days don't seem so long
I miss Sherrie I wanna go home
I'm way out here twenty miles from shore
I'd give six months pay for a little pirogue
