If all you got to live for
Is what you left behind,
Get yourself a powder charge
And seal that silver mine.
Lost my boots in transit, babe,
A pile of smokin' leather.
I nailed a retread to my feet
And prayed for better weather.


They say that when your ship comes in,
The first man takes the sails;
The second takes the afterdeck,
The third the planks and rails
What's the point of callin' shots;
This cue ain't straight in line.
Cue ball's made of styrofoam
And no one's got the time.

 A             D          A              D
Across the Rio Grandeeo, Across the lazy river.
