Lyrics:
Took my first breath, where the muddy Brazos, spills into the gulf of Mexico
Where the skyline's colored by chemical plants, t'put bread on the table of the working man
Where the working man does his best to provide, safety and shelter for kids and a wife
Givin' a little of his soul every day, making over time to keep the wolves away
Well I was barely thirteen when the company man, tried to dig my daddy's grave
It happened on a French owned tanker ship, spilling poison into Galveston Bay
Where the liquid fire filled his lungs and his eyes, silenced any mortal cries
Cold and the grip of death stinging pain, he fought like hell to keep the wolves away
For the next few years dad was sick as a dog, but he made a recovery just to spite the odds
Settlement came and we moved out of town, where the sky isn't heavy with refinery clouds
Yeah he's still alive he's doing good he's in his fifties
But the moneys running out, and he's pinching for pennies
So I'm goin' for broke with every song I play, 'cause now it's my turn to keep the wolves away
