These chords fit both Rayne, Louisiana, on Bruce Robison's "Wrapped" cd and 
the "Unleased live - Charlie & Bruce Robison and Jack Ingram". There are less 
runs in the live version which is what I have tabbed. If you would like the
runs in the studio version, feel free to email me.

Verse 1:
D       Em                G#        G     D  
So long Rayne, Louisiana, never see me no more.
D                       Em         
Hundred dollars, thirty days in the slammer,
F          G        D  
I'd rather hit the road. 
D       Em             G#        G        D
I found I'm goin crazy everyday here the same.
             Em                    F      G        D
I'm bound to go to the city where nobody knows my name.


Break 1:
Em                  D/F#                     G
How many days can I walk this road from the levee
             Em                           D/F#
To the farm? Wake up in the moring in the same old
                 G                   Gm
Place. Only the leavin' is left and gone.

Repeat Intro

Verse 2:
D       Em               G#             G        D
So long ol' New Orleans, nothing but a waste of time.
            Em                    F     G        D
Hot nights down in the quarter, took me my last dime.
                 Em                  G#           G
Well I count the waves in the water just like an old
      D               Em                  F         G
Drunk bum. Deep down Mississippi river, where's it all 
      D
Come from?


Break 2:
Em                     D/F#                   G
How many days can you spend in the shadows, hidin' from
          Em                      D/F#                 G
The sun? Waitin' for the night to lay your money on a point
            Gm
That never comes.

Repeat Intro 2x's

Verse 3:
D       Em             G#             G        D   Run #2
So long New York City, my dreams are dead and gone.
          Em                 F          G      D
No heart, no damn pity, I believe I'm headed home.
          Em                 G#        G         D
One time before I'm leavin' I'm gonna roll them dice.
                 Em                 F       G      D
If it comes in I got no worries, I lose I lose my life.

Break 3:
Em                   D/F#                       G
How many days can I spend in the middle of the black
                    Em               D/F# 
Concrete and cars? Been so cruel and care so little 
        G                  Gm 
'Bout a man that's come so far.

Repeat Intro
                                            D
So long, Rayne, Louisiana, never see me no more...
