            E6 - E - E6 - E
            E9 - A - F#m7 - E


            E
        I.  there's a cloud up in the north:
                                           A
            the Mississippi River changing course.
                   F#m7         E
            we've  got  to get away.
            E
            New Orleans is running dry,
                                     A
            flooding the Atchafalaya River.
                 F#m7    E
            how  can  we stay?


            E6               E
   CHORUS:  I  don't want to go.
            E6               E
            I  don't want to go.
            E9               A  F#m7    E
            I  don't want to go from my home.
            E6               E
            I  don't want to know.
            E6               E
            I  don't want to know.
            E9               A    F#m7      E
            I  don't want to know that it's gone.


 INSTRUMENTAL A:  E6 - E - E6 - E
                  E9 - A - F#m7 - E


            N.C.           E
  REFRAIN:  hey-oh, hey-oh            \
            N.C.           E           \
            hey-oh, hey-oh              >  STOP TIME
            N.C.  A    F#m7      E     /

       E9 - A    F#m7      E           /
            hey, oh - ay - oh         /


                    E
       II.  there's lots of little fishing boats
                                            A
            and a million other things that float
               F#m7         E
            in Lake Pontchartrain.
            E
            now that Bourbon Street is dry,
                                             A
            it's empty as the lonely weeping eye
                 F#m7       E
            of a dying hurricane.  but...


            /// REPEAT CHORUS ///

                E
      III.  I'm hangin' up my two-step shoes.

            can't go back to Big Mamou
            A               F#m7            E
            since the Mississippi broke the dam.
                    E
            they're fishing in Fred's parking lot.
                                           A
            Loretta can't keep her etouffe hot.
                  F#m7             E
            gotta leave that cajun land.  but...
