Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Gulf Of Mexico  Shawn Mullins

       [G]   She cooks him ham and ho'cakes  [C]
         at five thirty every morn [G]        [C]
       [G]   and she does the dishes     [C]
          and she irons his unif[G]orm        [C]

          And she t[G]hinks she might have loved him once, [C]
          but that was so long [G]ago      [C]
          and the r[G]ain pours down like a holy waterf[C]all
          over the G[G]ulf of Mexico     [C]

         [G] The boardwalk's deserted     [C]
          and the beach is all closed d[G]own   [C]
          and the[G] middle school punk rockers [C]
          ride their skateboards through the [G]town    [C]
          And s[G]he looks back and she daydreams
          about p[C]aintin' people she's never seen
          just to k[G]eep from bein' blue    [C]
          and s[G]he gets home about a quarter 'till four
          and she d[C]rives her brother to the liquor store
          on O[G]cean Avenue     [C]
         [G] And I'm parked on the stateline [C]
          on this cold November day   [G]       [C]
          and[G] pretty soon I'll be a drivin' fool  [C]
          somewhere down this lost hi[G]ghway     [C]
          and [G]I here a voice from my soul's core
          sayin[C]' freedom's just a metaphor
          you g[G]ot nowhere to go   [C]
          and the r[G]ain pours down like a holy waterfall  [C]
          over the G[G]ulf of Mexico     [C]
          over the G[G]ulf of Mexico     [C]
          over the G[G]ulf of Mexico     [C]
That's about it.
