                Chorus:

Am              C          F           G
Aransas Pass to Matagorda, Freeport to Galveston

          Am                        C                   F               G
It didn't matter which side of that old state line that Port Arthur was on

     C                                  F               G
Them Cajun boys were lonesome for Louisiana, that's for sure

                C              F            C
And they'd say "Goodbye Texas, hello Port Artur"



C             F                  C
Back in '67 I worked the evening tour

     F                C                                    G               
As a roughneck in the oil fields and I made eight bucks an hour

C                                   F             c
That was sure good money then but I always had it spent

F               C       G              C
Tuition down at Texas A&I was where it went



C                                               F              C
Now throwing chain through the summer break was not the way to go

     F               C                            G
So I took a job on a work boat in the Gulf of Mexico

    C                          F                C
The port of Corpus Christi was where we let out from

        F               C              G            C
And the crew was mostly Cajun boys too old for Viet-Nam




Am              C          F           G
Aransas Pass to Matagorda, Freeport to Galveston

          Am                        C                   F               G
It didn't matter which side of that old state line that Port Arthur was on

     C                                  F               G
Them Cajun boys were lonesome for Louisiana, that's for sure

                C              F            C
And they'd say "Goodbye Texas, hello Port Artur"


Solo


C                                   F               C
Evenings I would watch that big old sun sink in the waves

    F                 C                               G           
And I'd write letters back home to my sweetheart everyday

               C                                      F                     C
Them boys were nice enough but they'd had all of this state that they could stand

            F              C              G              C
They'd say "Texas, she's alright, but she ain't no Louisianne."



Am              C          F           G
Aransas Pass to Matagorda, Freeport to Galveston

          Am                        C                   F               G
It didn't matter which side of that old state line that Port Arthur was on

     C                                  F               G
Them Cajun boys were lonesome for Louisiana, that's for sure

                C              F            C
And they'd say "Goodbye Texas, hello Port Artur"

C              F            C
Goodbye Texas, hello Port Artur
