Capo 2nd Bm D Took my first breath where the muddy Brazos spills into the Gulf of Mexico A G Where the skylines covered my chemical plants that put bread on the table of a workin man Bm D Well the workin man does his best to provide safety and shelter for kids and a wife A G Given a little of his soul everyday makin overtime to keep the wolves away Bm D Well I was barely thirteen when the company man tried to dig my daddy's grave A G It happened on a French owned tanker ship spillin' poison into Galveston Bay Bm D The liquid fire filled his lungs and his eyes silenced, any moans or cries A G Cold and the Grit, the damn stinkin pain but he fought like hell to keep the wolves away. Bm D For the next few years dad was sick as a dog but he made a recovery just to spite the odds. A G Settlement came and we moved out of town where the sky isn't heavy with refinery clouds. Bm D Yeah he's still alive he's doing good he's in his fifties but the money's runnin out and he's pinchin pennies A G So I'm going for broke with every song I play, cause now it's my turn to keep the wolves away.
