Lyrics

She stood on the porch wearing red boots With the juice of some exotic fruit Dripping down her chin - she invited them in Just like the last time and the time before that He was the meanest man in the town Always pushing his guns around One hand full of coins and one hand full of snakes He slammed that door in a whiskey rage And she put ruby on her lips And she put honey in that dish And this may very well be the last sunset You'll see over Corpus Christi She was never well mannered or well tempered, just well read And she knew all the desert flowers and insects A whiskey on ice with a little sweet surprise You wanted a kiss, but you'll get a spider bite And she put ruby on her lips And she put honey in that dish And this may very well be the last sunset You'll see over Corpus Christi It didn't take long for all those flies to get stuck In all that gooey sweetness and bitter luck A slumber that would never end And they would never see those red lights again The border's not to far to go We'll cross it down to Mexico And this may very well be the Last sunset you'll see over Corpus Christi
