VERSE:
 A              D                 A              D
Well there's a hundred-thousand Frenchmen in New Orleans
A        D                   A              D
  In New Orleans there are Frenchmen everywhere
A            D               A
  But your house could burn down
         D             A
Or your babies could drown
          D             G        D   A
Wouldn't none of them Frenchmen care


VERSE:
 D    A   D         A
Everybody gather 'round
       D        A
Loosen up your suspenders
        D            A
Hunker down on the ground
 D      A
I'm a cracker
 D       A
You are too
     D                 G       D  A
But don't I take good care of you


PRE-CHORUS:
 D                       G
Who built the highway to Baton Rouge?
 D                            G
Who put up your hospital and built your schools?
 D                          G
Who is it looks after shit-kickers like you?
              D         Bdim A D  A
You know the Kingfish do


PRE-CHORUS:
 D                                 G
Who gave a big party down at the Roosevelt Hotel?
 D                                    G              
Invited the whole north half of the state down for free
 D                               G
Everybody in the city had their eyes bugging out
        D        Bdim    A   D  
'Cause everybody looked like me

PRE-CHORUS:
 D                                     G
Who took on the Standard Oil men and whipped their ass
 D                         G
Just like he promised he'd do?
        D                               G
But it ain't no Standard Oil men gonna run this state
               D               Bdim A   D  
It's gonna be run by folks like me and you


CHORUS:
 D              Bm  F#           Bm  F#
Here comes the Kingfish, oh the Kingfish
 Bm            Em     D   F#
Friend of the working man
