[Verse 1]

        G Em          G Em
She was born in New Orleans
      Am        
New Orleans, Louisiana
                     Bm  
Branded with the name Lisa Sawyer
     (Bbm) Am
Circa 196--3
               G
Grandmother was Indian, Indian
                     Am
Her mother's name was Eartha
Swift as the wind
Fierce as fire
                     Bm
Her father's name was Victor
                           (Bbm)   Am
Worked two jobs to provide for his flock

             G 
She was the youngest of seven,seven
                    Am
She grew up on Louisa Street
Chaos around but inside cozy
                          Bm
Small but a mansion in her eyes, eyes, eyes, 
(Bbm)  Am
Man---sion


[Chorus]

      G
Never had much money, money
              Am
But was filthy rich
With the wealth you couldn't get from a dark casino
Or a lottery ticket
        Bm
They had love, love, love
 (Bbm)  Am
Rich in love


[Instrumental]

G Am Bm (Bbm) Am


[Verse 2]

           G       
She had the complexion of
                         Am
The complexion of a sweet praline
Hair long as the sea
Heart warm like Louisiana sun
                      Bm
Voice like a symphony
Of the most beautiful instruments
 (Bbm)  Am
Beautiful

      G
At the age of sixteen, sixteen
         Am  
She found Christ at an altar
All along he was calling her name
                            Bm      
The gospel spoken from an old wrinkly man, man, man
 (Bbm)  Am
Go---spel


[Chorus]

       G
She was born in New Orleans
She was born in New Orleans
She was born in New Orleans
         Am
New Orleans
