Keep The Wolves Away

Capo on 2nd fret


Intro:  Bm  D  A  G 

Took my first breath where the muddy Brazos 

spills into the gulf of Mexico 

where the skylines covered my chemical plants 

that put bread on the table of a workin man 

well the workin man does his best to provide 

safety and shelter for kids and a wife 

given a little of his soul everyday 

      G (strum once and let ring) 
makin overtime to keep the wolves away

Bm D A G (Instrumental Chorus with whistling) Bm Well I was barely thirteen when the company man D Tried to dig my daddy's grave A It happened on a French owned tanker ship G Spillin' poison into Galveston Bay Bm The liquid fire filled his lungs and his eyes D Silenced, any moans or cries A Cold and the Grit, the damn stinkin pain G (strum once and let ring) but he fought like hell to keep the wolves away. insrtumental Chorus same as before 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 money's runnin out and he's pinchin pennies so I'm going for broke with every song I play, cause now it's my turn to keep the wolves away.
