Toby Keith
“New Orleans”
“How Do You Like Me Now” Album

Capo 3
Intro: G,D,C,D

Verse 1
G                   D
He was twenty-five, she was twenty-eight
He was home grown country
She'd just pulled off the interstate
    G                        D
She bought a Dr. Pepper, ten dollars worth of gas
        C                  D                   G        D  
She was obviously lost but too afraid to ask directions
      G                         D
So he offered her a smile and a stick of Beech Nut gum
        C                                       D
He said where you headed to girl, where are you coming from

She said…(chorus)

 G         D                   C     C-D (quick strums)
New Orleans but that's another story
 G         D               C
New Orleans that's another time
               D                    G     C     D
That's another town, that's another life

Verse 2
G                      D
First she stayed a day then she stayed a week
Couple of months later
They were living on his parent's street
G                         D
He worked the station and she worked the store
And then they had a baby and
D                  G                D
Then they had one more little Jesse
G                                    D
When she dropped the kids off at the mother's day out
All the ladies had their questions
But knew not to ask about (Chorus)

Verse 3 (same chords)

Wednesday night supper at the First Baptist Church
Stranger standin' in the doorway
As they're passin' out the dessert
He said go on and pack your bags
Cause I'm here to take you home

I'm goin' back to Louisiana

And woman I ain't gonna go with out you

There's a few defining moments in every person's life

When you know what you've done wrong

And you know what you've done right

And before the congregation and her husband and her kids

She says, "How dare you even speak to me

After everything you did"

That's another town, that's another life
