 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
