WRONG-WAY CORRIGAN

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


          I.  Douglas Corrigan took off at dawn.
              he was supposed to be California bound.
              but with fog in the sky,
              misread compass in his eye,
              he flew to Ireland safe and sound.

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

     CHORUS:  Wrong-Way Corrigan,
              please come back again.
              they had heroes then.
              we were born too late.
              Wrong-Way Corrigan,
              please come back again.
              they had heroes then.
              we were born too late.

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

              (repeat first verse)

              (repeat chorus twice)
