I DON'T WANT TO GO

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


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

     CHORUS:  I don't want to go.
              I don't want to go.
              I don't want to go from my home.
              I don't want to know.
              I don't want to know.
              I don't want to know that it's gone.

    REFRAIN:  hey-oh, hey-oh
              hey-oh, hey-oh
              hey, oh-ay-oh
              hey-oh, hey-oh
              hey-oh, hey-oh
              hey, oh-ay-oh

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

              /// REPEAT CHORUS ///

        III.  I'm hangin' up my two-step shoes.
              can't go back to Big Mamou
              since the Mississippi broke the dam.
              they're fishing in Fred's parking lot.
              Loretta can't keep her etouffe hot.
              gotta leave that cajun land.  but...

              /// REPEAT CHORUS ///

     ENDING:  hey-oh, hey-oh
              hey-oh, hey-oh
              hey, oh-ay-oh
              hey-oh, hey-oh
              hey-oh, hey-oh
              hey, oh-ay-oh
