WINDS OF CORPUS CHRISTI

The winds of Corpus Christi blow all year round
It keeps us warm in the wintertime, it keeps the summer heat down
The winds of Corpus Christi are something II’ll never forget
Like that day on the boardwalk when we first met

I remember it well, the week my Grandpa died
Told my Dad I was leaving town, he took it pretty hard
I pulled out of Austin, in Grandpa’s old pick-up truck
Borrowed 500 from my Mama and she gave a kiss for luck

Chorus
 Now, hurricanes and driving rain will never run me away
Found the love of my life and I’m here to stay
My old friends back in Austin, I don’t think they even miss me
That why I fell in love with the winds of Corpus Christi

An old man warned me of about trouble every ten years or so
About the chance you take every day on the Gulf of Mexico

But hurricanes and driving rain will never run me away
Lovers may come and go, but I’m here to stay
I never forget that first time on the boardwalk when she kissed me
That’s when I fell in love with the Winds of Corpus Christi

TAG:  That when I fell in love with the Winds of Corpus Christi
