Leaving Louisiana In The Broad Daylight
By The Oak Ridge Boys
   
	
B 
Mary took to runnin’ with a travelin’ man

Left her momma crying with her head in her hands
       E                  B
Such a sad case so broken hearted
B
She said momma I got to go, I gotta get out of here

I gotta get out of town

I'm tired of hanging around
        E                   B
I gotta roll on between the ditches


It's just an ordinary story bout the way things go
Round and round, nobody knows
But the highway goes on forever
That old highway rolls on forever
Lord she never would have done it if she hadn't got drunk
If she hadn't started runnin’ with a travelin’ man
If she hadn't started takin’ those crazy chances
She said daughter let me tell you ‘bout the traveling kind
Everywhere he's going such a very short time
He'll be long gone before you know it
He'll be long gone before you know it

Chorus:
         G#m                           F#
She said never have I known it when it felt so good
E                           B
Never have I knew it when I knew I could
G#m                          F#
Never have I done it when it looked so right
E
Leaving Louisiana in the broad daylight


This is down in the swampland anything goes
It's alligator bait and the bars don't close
It's the real thing down in Louisiana
Did you ever a Cajun when he really got mad
Really got trouble like a daughter gone bad
It gets real hot down in Louisiana
The stranger better move it or he's gonna get killed
He's gonna have to get it or a shotgun will
It ain't no time for lengthy speeches
There ain't no time for lengthy speeches


Repeat Chorus twice
