Pardon me sir, you got a dime?

I'm trying to find my way back to New Orleans.


A   [ch]C#m/A[/ch]   D Dm  A


Verse:
I did my time in Baton Rouge, in Birmingham and Huston, too, 
but all I ever see
Was weary faces just like mine, waiting in endless lines, 
just'a trying to find a seat.

Chorus:
Lost their tickets for a Greyhound bus, 
when it left them in the dust and gone away.
Now all they're asking is for you to help their cause, 
'cause they're going a long way.

They're walking 40 days and nights under the Texas sun, 
won't someone help them please?
Spare just a dollar or a dime, 
they're trying to find their way back to New Orleans.

Come on let's find our way.
