(listen to the song for the rythym)
Am DmI'll tell it like it happened, it was Darius and Noland and me,
E Am Just a few po' boys trying to get up out of Missouri.
Am DmTook 55 to Louisiana, stopped down by the highway to eat.
E Am They both had crawfish. Strictly chicken for me.
Am DmBack out under thunderheads, the radio was Southern soul.
Am CThey interrupted Clarence Carter with a strange-ass local show.
EThey were sayin'...
Am E"Come down to Lake Pontchartrain.
C GRest your soul and feed your brain.
Am E That's where you will get to see
C G AmEverything the water can be."
Am DmThe rain was comin' down, the wind was howlin' outside of Slidell.
E AmIt was the kind of night that makes you think the whole world's goin' to hell.
Am DmWe got off on an exit 'cause we couldn't read the map so great.
E AmNear the Choctaw Motel, we parked to deliberate,
Am DmWhen out of the bayou came a man like the lake had a tongue.
E AmHe was right up on the glass, all yellow-eyed, black teeth, bangin' on the windshield,
EScreamin' like a demon at the top of his lungs,
Am E"Come down to Lake Pontchartrain.
C GRest your soul and feed your brain.
Am EFree for you and all your friends.
C GCrawfish 'til the bitter end.
Am ECome down to Lake Pontchartrain.
C GWade to where the shallows break.
Am EThat's where you will get to see
C G AmEverything the water can be."
DmI was drivin' out of there as fast as a Camry could,
E AmBut the interstate was flooded, so I had to take the road through the woods.
Am FBad move in retrospect; the road disappeared in the rain,
EAnd I stood on the brakes when I saw the sign:
E"Lake Pontchartrain..."
AmDarius was yelling that he saw somebody out in the swells;
EHe jumped out, runnin', and Noland was goin' as well.
Am Dm"Come back!" Why the hell would they leave the car?
E EAnd that's when I heard it, make no mistake -
E EThe voices were calling them from under the lake...
"Come down to Lake Pontchartrain... Come down to Lake Pontchartrain... Come down to Lake Pontchartrain... Come down to Lake Pontchartrain..."
Am DmThe crawfish were screaming, the waves danced in time.
E AmMy friends went in deeper; the water, it climbed.
Am DmI watched in terror; the lake opened wide,
E AmAnd horribly roaring, it pulled them inside.
Am FThat's how it happened! Why would I lie?
E AmThere were no bodies, I've got none to hide.
Dm AmI'm just a poor boy, lost his friends in the rain.
E Am Any more questions, just go and ask Lake Pontchartrain.
And it ends with this progression: Am G C AmE|---------0-0-0-0---------------------------------------------------|B|--1-1-1--0-0-0-0---1-1-1-1--1--------------------------------------|G|--2-2-2--1-1-1-1---0-0-0-0--2--------------------------------------|D|--2-2-2--2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2--2--------------------------------------|A|--0-0-0--2-2-2-2---3-3-3-3--0--------------------------------------|E|---------0-0-0-0---------------------------------------------------|
