Gulf Coast Highway - Nanci Griffith

Written by:Daniel W. Flowers/Nanci Griffith/James Hooker

Gulf coast highway

 

He worked the rails

 

He worked the rice fields

With their cool dark wells

 

He worked the oil rigs in the

Gulf of Mexico

The only thing we've ever owned

Is this old house here by the road

 

And when he dies he says he'll catch

Some blackbird's wing

Then he will fly away to heaven come

Some sweet blue bonnet Spring

 

She walked through Springtime

 

When I was home

 

The days were sweet

 

The nights were warm

 

Seasons change the jobs would

Come the flowers fade

 

This old house felt so alone

 

When the work took me away

 

And when she dies she says she'll

Catch some blackbirds wing

She will fly away to heaven come

Some sweet blue bonnet Spring

 

Highway 90

 

The jobs are gone

 

We tend our garden

 

We set the sun

 

This is the only place on earth

Blue bonnets grow

Once a year they come and go

At this old house here by the road

 

And when we die we say we'll

Catch some blackbirds wing

Then we will fly away to heaven come

Some sweet blue bonnet Spring

 

And when we die we say we'll

Catch some blackbirds wing

We will fly away together come

 

Some sweet blue bonnet Spring
