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

repeat #5


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

repeat #5 x2
