Here is a great Robert Earl Keen Jr. song off his A Bigger Piece of Sky
Album

Corpus Christi Bay
by Robert Earl Keen Jr.

Capo on 3rd fret

G                                                                                         C  G
I worked the rigs from three Ttil midnight
G                                     C
On the Corpus Christi Bay
C                          G
IUd get off and drink Ttil daylight
G                 D
Sleep the mornin away
D                       C G
I had a plan to take my wages
G                         C
Leave the rigs behind for good
C                      G               D
But that life it is contagious
D                                      G
And it gets down in your blood


G                                                                                         C  G
I lived in Corpus with my brother
G                                      C
We were always on the run
C                          G
We were bad for one another
G                 D
But we were good at having fun
D                       C G
We got stoned along the seawall
G                         C
We got drunk and rolled a car
C                      G               D
We knew the girls at every dancehall
D                                      G
Had a tab at every bar


Chorus:
G                       D              C
If I could live my life all over
C                                      G
It wouldnUt matter anyway
G                       C              D
TCause I never could stay sober
D                                      G
On the Corpus Christi Bay


G                                                                                         C  G
My brother had a wife and family
G                                      C
You know he gave Tem a good home
C                            G
But his wife thought we were crazy
G                 D
And one day we found her gone
D                              C    G
We threw here clothes into the car trunk
G                         C
Her photographs her rosary
C                      G              D
We went to the pier and got drunk
D                                     G
And threw it all into the sea

CHORUS
G                           D         C
If I could live my life all over
C                                     G
It wouldnUt matter anyway
G                         C           D
TCause I never could stay sober
D                                     G
On the Corpus Christi Bay


G                                                                                       C  G
Now my brother lives in Houston
G                                     C
He married for the second time
C                          G
He got a job with the union
G                 D
And it's keeping him in line
D                           C G
He came to Corpus just this weekend
G                         C
It was good to see him here
C                      G              D
He said he finally gave up drinkinU
D                                     G
Then he ordered me a beer

CHORUS (TWICE)
G                           D         C
If I could live my life all over
C                                     G
It wouldnUt matter anyway
G                         C           D
TCause I never could stay sober
D                                     G
On the Corpus Christi Bay
G                           D         C
If I could live my life all over
C                                     G
It wouldnUt matter anyway
G                         C           D
TCause I never could stay sober
D                                     G
On the Corpus Christi Bay

I think it's a good tab for a great song. Does anyone know the chord progression that happens over the pedal steel after the second and the final chorus?
