Gulf Coast Highway
Nanci Griffith
        
G               C                   G
Gulf coast highway, he worked the rails,
G                                             C
He worked the rice fields with their cool dark wells,
              Em               D        G
He worked the oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico,
        C                  G              D                     G
The only thing we've ever owned is this old house here by the road

Chorus
          Em                    D                   G
And when he dies, he says he'll catch some blackbird's wing
           C             G                  D                    G
And he will fly away to heaven, come some sweet blue bonnet spring

G                     C                   G
She walked through spring time, when I was home
G                                   C
Our days were sweet, the nights were warm
        Em               D             G
Seasons pass, jobs would come, flowers fade, 
         C               G          D              G
This old house felt so alone when the work took me away
 
             Em                    D                       G
And when she dies, she says she'll catch some blackbird's wing,
             C             G                    D               G
And she will fly away to heaven, come some sweet blue bonnet spring.

G              C          G
Highway 90, the jobs are gone,
G                           C
We tend our garden, we set the sun
            Em                   D            G
This is the only place on earth blue bonnets grow
       C                 G                    D                    G
And once a year they come and go At this old house here by the road
            Em                  D                    G
And when we die, we say we'll catch some blackbird's wing,
        C             G                       D                    G
And we will fly away together come some sweet blue bonnet spring.
