B
Lord Mary took to running with a travelin man

Left her momma crying with her head in her hands
       E                  B
Such a sad case so broken hearted
B
She say momma I got to go I gotta get out of here

I gotta get out of town

I'm tired of hanging around
        E                   B
I gotta roll on between the ditches
B
It's just an ordinary story bout the way things go

Round and round nobody knows
        E                  B
But the highway goes on forever
         E                 B
That old highway rolls on forever
B
Lord she never would have done it if she hadn't got drunk

If she hadn't started running with a traveling man
       E                                 B
If she hadn't started taking those crazy chances
B
She say daughter let me tell you bout the traveling kind

Eveywhere he's going such a very short time
         E                    B
He'll be long gone before you know it
         E                    B
He'll be long gone before you know it
        G#m                           F#
She say never have I known it when it felt so good
E                           B
Never have I knew it when I knew I could
G#m                          F#
Never have I done it when it looked so right
E
Leaving Louisiana in the broad daylight

B
This is down in the swampland anything goes

It's alligator bait and the bars don't close
         E                      B
It's the real thing down in Louisiana
B
Did you ever a cajun when he really got mad

Really got trouble like a daughter gone bad
        E                      B
It gets real hot down in Louisiana
B
The stranger better move it or he's gonna get killed

He's gonna have to get it or a shotgun will
         E                   B
It ain't no time for lengthy speaches
            E                    B
There ain't no time for lengthy speaches
        G#m                           F#
She say never have I known it when it felt so good

Never have I done it when it looked so right
