Gulf Coast Highway Chords

   
Capo on 2nd fret

Gulf coast highway, he worked the rails
                                                F                                
He worked the rice fields with their cool, dark wells
              Am              G            C
He worked the oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico
           F                C               G                C
The only thing we've ever owned is this old house here by the road
            Am                 G                      C
And when he dies he says he'll catch some blackbird's wing
             F           C                 G                C
And he will fly away to heaven, come some sweet Blue Bonnet spring.

She walked through springtime when I was home
                                      F
Our days were sweet, our nights were warm
             Am                     G                  C
The seasons changed, the jobs would come, the flowers fade
          F              C              G            C
And this house felt so alone, when the work took me away
             Am                 G                      C
And when she dies he says she'll catch some blackbird's wing
             F           C                 G                C
And she will fly away to heaven, come some sweet Blue Bonnet spring.

Higway 90, the jobs are gone now
                                   F
We tend our garden and we set the sun
             Am           G                  C
This is the only place on earth Blue Bonnets grow
           F                  C              G                  C
And once a year they come and go at this old house here by the road
            Am                 G                      C
And when we die we say we'll catch some blackbird's wing
             F           C                 G                C
And we will fly away to heaven, come some sweet Blue Bonnet spring.

            Am                 G                      C
And when we die we say we'll catch some blackbird's wing
             F           C                 G                C
And we will fly away together, come some sweet Blue Bonnet spring.
