He puts her on redfish and flounder and trout, and they tear up the flats in the fall
    G            Em7        G             G/B
She gets back to Dallas all sun burnt and sour
G/C           G/B            G/A        Em7
Worn out from slinging plugs hour after hour

We're all in the family, the cursed and the blessed
         D/F#                 G
It's the state of the union I guess
