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


                            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
 

    
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


                            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


                            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
