G5                                 C5  G5 
I worked the rigs from three 'til midnight 
G5                     C5 
On the Corpus Christi Bay 
C5                          G5 
I'd get off and drink 'til daylight 
G5                 D5 
Sleep the mornin' away 
D5                       C5 G5 
I had a plan to take my wages 
G5                         C5 
Leave the rigs behind for good 
C5                      G5            D5 
But that life it is contagious 
D5                        G5 
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 

G5                           D5               C5 
If I could live my life all over 
C5                  G5 
It wouldn't matter anyway 
G5                         C5                D5 
'Cause I never could stay sober 
D5                     G5 
On the Corpus Christi Bay 

My brother had a wife and family 
You know he gave 'em 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 
Now my brother lives in Houston 
He married for the second time 
He got a job with the union 
And it's keeping him in line 
He came to Corpus just this weekend 
It was good to see him here 
He said he finally gave up drinkin' 
Then he ordered me a beer 
Chorus (TWICE)
