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 morninU 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


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


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

CHORUS

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

CHORUS (TWICE)
