Corpus Christie Bay

Höfundur lags: Robert Earl Keen Jr. Flytjandi: Johnny Rodriguez Sent inn af: Anonymous

[C]I worked the rigs from three to midnight
On the Corpus Christi [F]Bay  
I'd get off and drink till [C]daylight
Sleep the morning right [G7]away   

I had a [C]plan to take some wages
Leave the rigs behind for [F]good
But that life it is [C]contagious
And it gets [G7]down in your [C]blood


I lived in Corpus with my brother
We were always on the [F]run  
We were bad for one [C]another
But we were good at having [G7]fun   

We got [C]stoned out on the seawall
We got drunk and rolled a [F]car  
We knew the girls at every [C]dance-hall
Had a [G7]tab at every [C]bar  

If I could live my life all [G7]over   
[F]It wouldn't matter [C]anyway
Cause I never could stay [G7]sober
On the Corpus Christi [C]Bay  


My brother had a wife and family
You know he gave them a good [F]home
But his wife thought we were [C]crazy
And one [G7]day we found them [C]gone


We threw her clothes into the car trunk
Her photographs her rosa[F]ry  
We went out to the pier and got [C]drunk
And threw [G7]it all into the [C]sea  

If I could live my life all [G7]over   
[F]It wouldn't matter [C]anyway
Cause I never could stay [G7]sober
On the Corpus Christi [C]Bay  

Now my brother lives in Houston
He married for the second [F]time
He got a good job with the [C]union
And it's keeping him in [G7]line   

He came to [C]Corpus just this weekend
It was good to see him [F]here
He said he finally gave up [C]drinking
Then he [G7]ordered me a [C]beer

If I could live my life all [G7]over   
[F]It wouldn't matter [C]anyway
Cause I never could stay [G7]sober
On the Corpus Christi [C]Bay  

If I could live my life all [G7]over   
[F]It wouldn't matter [C]anyway
Cause I never could stay [G7]sober
On the Corpus Christi [C]Bay

You know he gave them a good home
But his wife thought we were crazy
And one day we found them gone

We threw her clothes into the car trunk
Her photographs her rosary
We went out to the pier and got drunk
And threw it all into the sea

If I could live my life all over
It wouldn't matter anyway
Cause I never could stay sober
On the Corpus Christi Bay

If I could live my life all over
It wouldn't matter anyway
Cause I never could stay sober
On the Corpus Christi Bay
