Blue Marlin Blues  George Strait

By George Strait
No Capo (Or Capo 1 in E)
[F]First one off the dock, long before dawn, headed to the blue water, [C7]won't take long
A [F]box full of ballyhoo, [Bb]rigged just right, still [F]hurtin' from that [C7]party last [F]night
[F]30 miles later, get the call lines in, scramble 'round the cockpit thinkin' [C7]we're gonna win
[F]Seven hours later, we still [Bb]ain't caught a thing, the [F]mood on this [C7]boat sure has [F]changed
I got the [F]blue marlin blues from my hat to my shoes
I used to[F] catch 'em in twos, no matter which bait I choose
How many [C7]more can I lose, they got me drinkin' the booze
I got the [F]blue [Bb]marlin [F]blues
I had one swimmin' right behind my bait, all lit up man, I just couldn't wait
I picked up the rod, I put it in free spool, thinkin' I'll shake these blue marlin blues
He knocked it out of the clip and I fed him some line, I locked it up and I began to wind
He came out of the water, spit the bait right at me then disappeared back into the sea
