I guess if you live in, say, Memphis or San Francisco, it's not a big deal when your city gets mentioned in a song. However, I think it's pretty cool when CC is mentioned. I'm not that big on Texas music, so there are probably more songs out there than I know about. Here are the two I know of:

Corpus Christi Bay - Robert Earle Keene

Corpus Christi - Ricky Presely (actually found a 45 of this IN THE TRASH)


Any other CC-related songs out there?

Max Stalling's "Lay my Burdens Down", which technically doesn't mention Corpus, but the Nueces river.

"Lone Star State of Mind" by Nancy Griffith

Nancy Griffith is a great Texas folk singer, who seems to be little known.

I think that using Corpus Christi in a song is rhythmically challenging. I only remember a song that my 2nd grade teacher would play on a 45 for us. It seemed like a song made up the Tourist Bureau. The words were like "Corpus Christi, that's my hometown, ....Padre Island, Aransas Pass for fishing, fun & play,Come over for a lifetime or just a day. Corpus Christi, that's my hometown. It's funny how those lyrics have stuck in my head from almost 40 years ago. yikes

The original version of "Corpus Christi Bay" by Johnny Rodriguez

"Redneck Riviera" by Gary P. Nunn - actually about Port Aransas, but it mentions CC.

That'd be "Christian Woman", and while it does mention Corpus Christi, it's not mentioning it as a city.

Joe King Carrasco- But I forgot which song? The lyrics say "Corpus Christi-rise and shine" or something. We asked him him about a few years ago, he couldn't remember either -LOL
