Hello New Orleans
By Robert Earl Keen

Capo 2

C  F  G  C


C               F                 Am             G
Standiní here beside this freeway wishing I was high
C                 F                 Am                 G
Wondering why she said she loved me then she said goodbye
    Am              Em              F              G
Iím down to my last dollar in these faded old blue jeans
   C        F         G            C
So adios to Amarillo, hello New Orleans

 
Her hair was made of summer sunlight the moon lit in her eyes
Her voice would ride the wind at midnight across the starry skies
Love is blind thatís what they tell me in all those magazines
So adios to Amarillo, hello New Orleans

 
We talked about our lives together we talked about our plans
We walked through rain and windy weather across the shifting sands
She took the car thatís how I know this ainít no crazy dream
So adios to Amarillo, hello New Orleans

 
Iíll eat my fill of jambalaya and crawfish etouffť
Iíll drink the Mississippi dry, laissez les bon temps rouler
Iíll trade her memory in on one of those Cajun queens
So adios to Amarillo, hello New Orleans
So adios to Amarillo, hello New Orleans
