INTRO: E - B7 - E - E7 - B7 - E

    E7             B7          E
Ma cheri, she has left me for good
    E7           B7           E
After I gave my love for so long
She's out there with somebody new
And I just can't sit here alone, no

But it's so hard to drive with these tears in my eyes
               A                               A#dim7 -- C#dim7
And it takes a long time to get to Baton Rouge
          E          B7       E            A
And all I want is to hear somebody play my song
       E7(2)       B7          E
When a Cajun man   gets the blues

         B7                        E
When I'm feeling the weight of the water
       B7                             E
Lord I know that there's blues in the Quarter
         E7             B7         A
If I could hold back my tears and make it there, I'd be alright
But I might need ya, New Orleans, every night

        E              B7     E
I don't know where I'd be without you
             E7             B7          E
Yeah, you've been there for me all the while
From Lafayette, to Thibodaux, to Lake Charles
From Natchitoches, to Shreveport, to Grand Isle

When I'm feeling the pain, the bayou's callin' my name
              A                        A#dim7 -- C#dim7
And that's an offer that I can't refuse
        E       B7       E      A
Oh,it's hard to miss you, Louisiana
       Ddim7    B7         E
When a Cajun man gets the blues
       E7        B7      E        A
Yes it's hard to miss you,  Louisiana
         E7(2)      B7         E
When this Cajun man gets the blues

Very nice. Samantha Fish learned the song from Tab, and you can see a good version of her playing it here: https://youtu.be/BtelVD_xRF0 Really helped me in learning this song.
