[INTRO] Am C D Am  x2

[VERSE]
Am                  C
Thirty miles on the Gulf Stream
   D                    Am
I hear the south wind moan
      Am             C
The bridges getting lower
D                    Am
Shrimp boats coming home

     Am                     C
The old man down in the Quarter
D                 Am
Slowly turns his head
Am                     C
Takes a sip from his whiskey bottle
  D                   Am
And this is what he said

[CHORUS]
        Am                      C
I was born in the rain on the Pontchartrain
       D                    Am
Underneath the Louisiana moon
  Am                            C
I don't mind the strain of a hurricane
      D                 E
They come around every June

Am                    C
High black water, a devil's daughter
       D                          Am
She's hard, she's cold and she's mean
     Am                     G
But nobody taught her it takes a lot of water
    D                Am
To wash away New Orleans

[INSTRUMENTAL]  Am

[VERSE]
Am                     C
Man came down from Chicago
          D              Am
He gonna set that levee right
          Am                        C
He says, "It needs to be at least three feet higher
     D                       Am
It won't make it through the night"

         Am                    C
But the old man down in the Quarter
        D                          Am
He said don't you listen to that boy
    Am                      C
The water be down by the morning
             D            Am
And he'll be back to Illinois
