DCome and gather 'round me people and a Gtale to you I'll Dtell DOf my Afather and his father in the Gdays before the DSpill DWith an endless sky above 'em and a Grestless sea Dbelow DAnd eAvery blessing flowing from the GGulf of MexicDo DWell my Granddad worked the shrimp boats from the Gtime that he was Dgrown DAnd he Ascrimped and saved and bought himself a Gtrawler of his Down DHe was rough and he was ready and he Gdrank when he was Dhome DAnd he Amade his family's living on the GGulf of MexicDo

Chorus

DHe was GrolDling, DHe was GrolDling DCross the Gdeep blue water he was ArolDling DWell my Daddy drove a crew boat hauling Gworkers to the Drigs DHe was Asick of mending nets and couldn't Gstand the smell of Dfish DHe drew a steady paycheck 20 Gyears from TexacDo DWhen he Adied we spread his ashes on the GGulf of MexicDo

Chorus

DHe was GrolDling, He was GrolDling DCross the Gdeep green water he was ArolDling DAs for me I dreamed of nothing any Ggrander than the Dday

D A G

TDhat I stepped out on the drilling floor to earn a roughneck's pay DThen one night I swear I saw the Gdevil crawlin' from the Dhole DAnd he Aspilled the guts of hell out in the GGulf of MexiDco

Chorus

DWe were GrolDling, we were GrolDling DCross the Gblood red water we were ArolDling
