Galveston Bay - Parker McCollum

Well, you can't stop the ocean
And you can't stop the wind
They're here, then they're gone
They don't come back again
And one will keep you rollin'
One will blow you away
Left me standin' all alone
Next to Galveston Bay

Well, a ramblin' gal since you were young
One big ball of yarn
That was too tightly spun
When you came unraveled, girl
You really got strung out
And if you ever wind back up
Well, that's somethin' I doubt

Oh, Galveston Bay looks pretty at night
The water dancin' in the drillin' rig lights
And I'll stand here next to the wind and the waves
Right where you left me
Next to Galveston Bay

Well, the soldiers are marchin' off to the war
And we ain't won it yet
But we'll come back for more
And as I watch the battleships sailing away
From right where you left me
Next to Galveston Bay

Well, the clock just keeps a'tickin'
Time goes by so fast
As the barges keep steamin'
Down the San Louis Pass
And under the black smoke
The engines, they roar
And I'm right where you left me
Right next to the shore

Oh, Galveston Bay looks pretty at night
The water dancin' in the drillin' rig lights
And I'll stand here next to the wind and the waves
Right where you left me
Next to Galveston Bay

Where the good times went
Man, I ain't got a clue
You took my red heart
And turned it lavender blue
Say you ain't goin' nowhere
Thinkin' 'bout the past
And I say the good times
Are the ones that don't last

Well, the ocean breathes salty
And the wind, it blows hard
And I hope that you're happy wherever you are
And if you ever decide to head back my way
I'll be right where you left me
Next to Galveston Bay

Oh, Galveston Bay looks pretty at night
The water dancin' in the drillin' rig lights
And I'll stand here next to the wind and the waves
Right where you left me
Next to Galveston Bay
Right where you left me
Next to Galveston Bay
Oh, yeah, right where you left me
Next to Galveston, uh, Galveston Bay
