From the recording Corpus Christi

Lyrics

Corpus Christi

The wind always blows hot down there in off the Gulf of Mexico
Smoke stacks rise up everywhere painting the skyline a hazy shade of gold

Thirty years and a thousand days
Thirty three years of empty space
Followed me every step I made

Maybe he wasn’t such a bad man
Maybe he did the best he knew
I guess I’ll never know what he was thinking
Since I never walked in his shoes

In Corpus Christi I found a piece of my soul
In Corpus Christi I buried an old ghost

Pictures of Selena hang everywhere like an eternal patron saint of hope
The sins of my father I’ll always bare some pain hurts deeper then we know

We walked along the South Texas shore
On that overcast Sunday morn
Trying to find the words to say
Thirty years and a thousand days
Thirty three years of empty space
With us every step we made

Maybe he wasn’t such a bad man
Maybe he did the best he knew
I guess I’ll never know what he was thinking
Since I never walked in his shoes

In Corpus Christi I found a piece of my soul
In Corpus Christi I buried an old ghost
In Corpus Christi I found a piece of my soul
In Corpus Christi I buried an old ghost
