D                              G
Nine steps down on a ten story ride
D                 A         D 
One part love and two parts pride
D                                     G
Three tons of steel and four miles to go
D                        A           D
Sinking them down in the Gulf of Mexico

D                           G
Rigged on point, top of the tower
D                                A      D
Watch for those waves they’ll be rising fast
D                                 G 
Call from the driller down on the shore
D                           A            D
Derrickhand you better keep pumping that gas

G
No time to think of the girls in their cotton
D       
Dresses they wear in the early springtime
G
Memories here they’re all long forgotten
G                    A         D
Nine steps down on a ten story ride
A                              D
Nine steps down on a ten story ride


All of the boys thought you were a beauty
My motivation was a little less kind
Come with me I got something to show you
Out past the trees where the river runs wild

My oh my you were more than I bargained
For one time at the five and dime
Spending all my nickels and quarters
One part love and two parts pride


Put the hammer on down, we might just make it
Watch your eyes from drifting off the road
Drink ‘em on down five for a dollar 
Get it to the man with the weekly load

The rubber on the tires burning like a matchstick
Blacklist heart on a long ride home
Ain’t no god just a lifetime of Sundays
Three tons of steel and four miles to go


Water rising all around your mind
The slack pulling fast but you try to stay loose
There’s a storm rolling in on New Orleans
Gonna string everybody in a hang man’s noose

Nine steps down on a ten story ride
One part love and two parts pride
Three tons of steel and four miles to go
Sinking them down in the Gulf of Mexico
