How To Play
F A long time ago, yeah before you was born dude C F when I was still single and life was great I held this job as a traveling salesman C F that kept me moving from state to state F Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette State of Louisiana C F Wondering where a city boy could go To get a little conversation Drink a little red wine C Catch a little bit of those Cajun girls F Dancing to Zydeco F Along come a young girl, she's pretty as a prayerbook C F Sweet as an apple on Christmas day I said good gracious can this be my luck C F If that's my prayerbook, Lord let us pray F Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette State of Louisiana C F Wondering what a city boy could do To get a little conversation Maybe drink a little red wine C Dance to the music of Clifton Chenier F The King of the Bayou F Well, that was your mother, and that was your father C F Before you was born dude, when life was great You are the burden of my generation C F I sure do love you. Let's get that straight F Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette Across the street from The Public C F Heading down to the Lone Star Cafe Maybe get a little conversation Drink a little red wine C Standing in the shadow of Clifton Chenier F C F Dancing the night away
