GHOSTS OF LOUISIANA (COPYRIGHTED 2016)

VERSE1:

D
OH, AND THE GHOST OF LOUISIANA
EM D
MOVE'S WITH GRACE OVER BOURBON STREET
EM
THROUGH THE SUMMER HEAT
D EM
SMELL THE CAJUN FOOD AS SHE DANCES

CHORUS :
G Fmaj7 C
TO THE MISSISSIPPI DELTA BLUES
G Fmaj7 C
Oh TO THE MISSISSIPPI DELTA BLUES


VERSE 2:

D
AND AS IF ON CUE
EM
SHE DRIFTS TO THE BAYOU
D EM
WHERE CAJUN WITCHES MAKE THEIR BREW
D
STEAMS LIKE A SAUNA
EM
WITH NEW ORLEANS DRAMA

CHORUS :
G Fmaj7 C
DOWN IN THE FRENCH QUARTER
G Fmaj7 C
DOWN IN THE FRENCH QUARTER.......


VERSE 3:

D
AND AS THE NIGHT BECOMES A BLANKET
EM
AND THE WITCHES PREPARE A BANQUET
D EM
THOSE DANCING SHADOWS IN THE DARK
D EM
CAN ONLY BE THE GHOSTS OF LOUISIANA

CHORUS :
G Fmaj7 C
AND EVERYONE WILL KNOW THAT
G Fmaj7 C
THE DANCING IS MORE THAN SHOW


VERSE 4:

D
OH, AND THE GHOST OF LOUISIANA
EM D
MOVE'S WITH GRACE OVER BOURBON STREET
EM
THROUGH THE SUMMER HEAT
D EM
SMELL THE CAJUN FOOD AS SHE DANCES

CHORUS :
G Fmaj7 C
TO THE MISSISSIPPI DELTA
G Fmaj7 C
OH TO THE MISSISSIPPI DELTA
