WRONG-WAY CORRIGAN

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


              G                Em
          I.  Douglas Corrigan took off at dawn.
                        Bm                     C
              he was supposed to be California bound.
                       D
              but with fog in the sky,

              misread compass in his eye,
              C          F                G
              he flew to Ireland safe and sound.

              G                            Em
         II.  Charles A. Lindbergh was his idol,
                      Bm               C
              but his plane was old as sin.
                      D
              if he'd filed a flight-plan for Dublin,
              C               F        G
              they would have grounded him.

              Bb
   CHORUS A:  Wrong-Way Corrigan,
              G
              please come back again.
              Bb
              they had heroes then.
              G                Asus4  D  F
              we were born too late.
              Bb
              Wrong-Way Corrigan,
              G
              please come back again.
              Bb
              they had heroes then.
              G                Asus4 - A  - A(add9) - A - D - D7
              we were born too late.

                       G                     Em
        III.  "Just an honest mistake," some people say,
                            Bm              C
              or a Clifford Irving of yesterday.
              D
              most people like to think of it that way.
              C    F                  G
              what difference does it make?


              (repeat first verse)

              Bb
   CHORUS B:  Wrong-Way Corrigan,
              G
              please come back again.
              Bb
              they had heroes then.
              G                Asus4  D  F
              we were born too late.
              Bb
              Wrong-Way Corrigan,
              G
              please come back again.
              Bb
              they had heroes then.
              G                Asus4  D  F
              we were born too late.
              Bb
              Wrong-Way Corrigan,
              G
              please come back again.
              Bb
              they had heroes then.
              G                Asus4 - A  - A(add9) - A - Bb
              we were born too late.
