Galveston Bay
Parker McCollum Lyrics


Well you can't stop the ocean
And you can't stop the wind
They're here then they're gone
They dont come back again
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 drilling 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 battle ships sailing away
From right where you left me next to Galveston Bay
Well the clock just keeps tickin
Time goes by so fast
As the barges keep steamin
Down the San Louis pass
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 drilling 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
Where ever 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 drilling 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 next to Galveston Bay

Lived in Houston for most of my life.. my best times were spent on that beach. I live in Iowa now... miss those warm, windy nights... with my campfire feet in the sand.

As was I. I moved away to Dallas when I was 9 and as soon as I'm old enough I'm moving back..... To where I belong 💔. Can't wait to see you there bud.
