Corpus Christie Bay Recorded by Johnny Rodriguez Written by Robert Earl Keen Jr.
C I worked the rigs from three to midnight F On the Corpus Christi Bay C I'd get off and drink till daylight G7 Sleep the morning right away
C I had a plan to take some wages F Leave the rigs behind for good C But that life it is contagious G7 C And it gets down in your blood
I lived in Corpus with my brother F We were always on the run C We were bad for one another G7 But we were good at having fun
C We got stoned out on the seawall F We got drunk and rolled a car C We knew the girls at every dance-hall G7 C Had a tab at every bar
G7 If I could live my life all over F C It wouldn't matter anyway G7 Cause I never could stay sober C On the Corpus Christi Bay
My brother had a wife and family F You know he gave them a good home C But his wife thought we were crazy G7 C And one day we found them gone
We threw her clothes into the car trunk F Her photographs her rosary C We went out to the pier and got drunk G7 C And threw it all into the sea
Now my brother lives in Houston F He married for the second time C He got a good job with the union G7 And it's keeping him in line
C He came to Corpus just this weekend F It was good to see him here C He said he finally gave up drinking G7 C Then he ordered me a beer
