       G        D             C      G/B
It was on one fine March morning
   G         D      G     G  
I bid New Orleans adieu.
           G      D        C       G/B   
And I was on the road to Jackson town,
     G     G/B    C  
my fortune to renew,
     G         D       C      G/B 
I cursed all foreign money,
     G      D       C      C  
no credit could I gain,
        G         D           C      G/B    
Which filled my heart with longing for
      G         D      G      G
the lakes of Pontchartrain.
  
   G      D       C       G/B
 I sat on board a railway car,
   G         D      G     G  
beneath the morning sun, 
           G      D        C       G/B   
and I road the rails till evening, 
       G       G/B   C  
 and I laid me down again,
     G         D       C          G/B 
All strangers there no friends to me, 
        G         D          C      C  
 till a dark girl towards me came,
        G         D        C      G/B    
 And I fell in love with a Creole girl,
        G         D      G      G
 by the lakes of Pontchartrain.
        

   G        D      C      G/B
I said, "My pretty Creole girl,
   G       D      G     G  
my money here's no good,
           G              D   C       G/B   
But if it weren't for the alligators,
        G         G/B    C  
I would sleep out in the woods".
        G            D       C      G/B 
"You're welcome here kind stranger,
     G      D     C      C  
our house is very plain.
        G    D        C      G/B    
But we never turn a stranger out,
          G        D       G      G
>From the lakes of Pontchartrain."


    G        D       C      G/B
She took me into her momma's house,
    G       D        G     G  
and treated me right well,
   G      D        C       G/B   
The hair upon her shoulder
     G     G/B    C  
in jet black ringlets fell.
     G         D       C      G/B 
To try and paint her beauty,
     G          D       C      C  
I'm sure 'twould be in vain,
    G         D    C      G/B    
So handsome was my Creole girl,
       G         D       G      G
By the lakes of Pontchartrain.



   G        D           C      G/B
I asked her would she'd marry me,
   G         D          G     G  
she said it never would be,
    G      D        C       G/B   
For she had got another,
     G     G/B    C  
and he was of at sea.
     G         D        C        G/B 
She said that she would wait for him
     G      D       C      C  
and faithful she'd  remain.
G       D       C      G/B    
Waiting for her sailor,
       G         D      G      G
on the lakes of Pontchartrain.


========== banjo solo goes here (any help appreciated) ============


    G       D       C        G/B
So fare you well my Bonny ol girl,
   G         D          G     G  
I never will see you no more,
    G      D        C       G/B   
I wont forget your kindness,
       G     G/B    C  
in the cottage by the shore.
   G     D      C     G/B 
at every social gathering,
     G      D       C      C  
a golden glass I'll drain,
        G         D           C      G/B    
And I'll drink all health to the Creole girl, 
      G         D      G      G
And the lakes of Pontchartrain.
