Blue Marlin Blues
By George Strait
CD: Here For A Good Time - 2011
Tabbed By Larry Mofle
9/11/2011


No Capo (Or Capo 1 in E)

F                                                                   C7
First one off the dock, long before dawn, headed to the blue water, won't take long
  F                     Bb                       F                 C7         F 
A box full of ballyhoo, rigged just right, still hurtin' from that party last night
F                                                                           C7
30 miles later, get the call lines in, scramble 'round the cockpit thinkin' we're gonna win
F                           Bb                        F            C7            F    
Seven hours later, we still ain't caught a thing, the mood on this boat sure has changed


Chorus:
          F
I got the blue marlin blues from my hat to my shoes
         F   
I used to catch 'em in twos, no matter which bait I choose
         C7   
How many more can I lose, they got me drinkin' the booze
          F    Bb     F
I got the blue marlin blues


I had one swimmin' right behind my bait, all lit up man, I just couldn't wait
I picked up the rod, I put it in free spool, thinkin' I'll shake these blue marlin blues
He knocked it out of the clip and I fed him some line, I locked it up and I began to wind
He came out of the water, spit the bait right at me then disappeared back into the sea


Chorus
