[Verse]
G         Em                Cadd9    D            G     Em  Cadd9 D
Katie had plans, but there ain't no chance in the bayou
G        Em                Cadd9      D            G    Em  Cadd9  D
Turned eighteen and that's six months clean in the bayou
G           Em     Cadd9       D            G     Em Cadd9 D
Government came to take them away from the bayou,           said
     G          Em           Cadd9           D               G
The one's that stay will be washed to their graves with the bayou

Em  Cadd9 D

[Chorus]
              Cadd9       D           G     
So won't you tell me I'm lost when I lie to you
Em            D                  G        Cadd9
Tell me good thoughts are gonna carry us through
Em                      D         G
And I'll tell you what I'm gonna do
           Em              D              G                          Cadd9
I'm gonna fight the fire, take it higher sing it till they bring it down to the wire
Em                 D         G
Shake it off, and go start anew

[Verse]
G         Em                  Cadd9    D            G         Em  Cadd9  D
Katie left home, and made the trek all alone from the bayou
        G        Em          Cadd9            D            G   Em  Cadd9  D
Says Houston's cold, to the summer's that we know in the bayou
          G      Em           Cadd9              D            G    Em  Cadd9 D
But her old man drinks and at night she still thinks of the bayou
           G         Em             Cadd9           D            G
Yeah the city's got saved, but they never made the grade in the bayou

Em Cadd9 D

[Chorus]
              Cadd9       D           G     
So won't you tell me I'm lost when I lie to you
Em            D                  G        Cadd9
Tell me good thoughts are gonna carry us through
Em                      D         G
And I'll tell you what I'm gonna do
           Em              D              G                          Cadd9
I'm gonna fight the fire, take it higher sing it till they bring it down to the wire
Em                 D         G
Shake it off, and go start anew

[Outro]
Em                 D        Cadd9
Shake it off, and go start anew
Em                 D         G
Shake it off, and go start anew
