to play along (key is G)



G                    D                      C               D7    G                       
I was born in Texas and I was raised in Louisi  a na
              C
And I'm going down to Alabam gonna

find me some good smoked ham

head on down to New Orleans
                                     D7           G
With my baby in them sweet blue jeans
         D                         G
but I ain't going back to Texas



G                    D                      C               D7    G                       
I was born in Texas and I was raised in Louisi  a na


              C
And I'm going down to Baton Rouge gonna

eat me some Cajun food

head on down to New Orleans
                                   D7           G
With my baby in them sweet blue jeans
         D                         G
but I ain't going back to Texas


         C                               G
And you don't have to ask why
     D7                     G
I know it's plain to see
        C               G
that Texas blue sky
      D7                   G
It's seen the last of me



G                    D                      C               D7    G                       
I was born in Texas and I was raised in Louisi  a na


             C
And I'm going down to Tennessee gonna

find out what they have to eat

head on down to New Orleans
                                   D7           G
With my baby in them sweet blue jeans
         D                         G
but I ain't going back to Texas
         D                        G
no I ain't goin' back to Texas

        C                               G
And you don't have to ask why
     D7                     G
I know it's plain to see
        C               G
that Texas blue sky
      D7                   G
It's seen the last of me
