Year Two, Week Nine: “Pirate Queen of the Cowboy Waves”

Lyrics:

So you finally made your plans
Charter boating on the Rio Grande
Where white boys shoot fish and carry on
Don’t forget about us down there
When the sunshine is bleaching your hair
By the time you read this you’ll be gone

I looked for you at our normal spots
The OTBs and Indian slots
Remember when we passed out on the lawn
I should have taken it as a fact
When you said you’re leaving and you won’t come back
By the time you read this you’ll be gone

Stay a while
cause a thousand miles
is always waiting for you past the dawn
I couldn’t say this face to face
so I slipped a letter inside your case
By the time you read this you’ll be gone

Six years on and I still tell stories
You and me and hope and glory
like a midnight fairy or a leprechaun
Cause there’s a new breed at the bar
and none of them know even who you are
By the time you read this you’ll be gone

Legends fade and stories end
I’m just an old man who lost a friend
Nothing more nothing nothing left to pawn
but I love to picture your days
Pirate Queen of the Cowboy Waves
By the time you read this you’ll be gone

Stay a while
cause a thousand miles
is always waiting for you past the dawn
I couldn’t say this face to face
so I slipped a letter inside your case
By the time you read this you’ll be gone
