Subject: CRD:"Louisiana Lowdown" by Cowboy Mouth

"Louisiana Lowdown" by Cowboy Mouth
>From the MCA album "Are You with Me?"
Previously from the Monkey Hill album "Mouthin' Off (Live+More)"
(Also from Sanchez's solo album "Jet Black And Jealous")
Written by Paul Sanchez, sung by Fred LeBlanc (previously by Sanchez)
D#=x68886  C#=x46664  G#=466544  A#=688766  Gm=355333  Cm=335543

The main RIFF used throughout the song is:
D# D#   C# C# C# C#    D# D#   C# C# C# D#
The timing is difficult to show on this, but if you listen to the intro
can figure it out.  Basically play a few D#'s, then C#'s, then almost
the pattern but quickly come back for a D# instead of the last C#.

The little filler notes (FILL) are just a little "tickling" of the first
two strings (e and B) held at the 8th fret (just mash down your third
which should be on the 8th fret from playing the D# anyway).


        D#                FILL
Well my eyelids said four-thirty
        D#               FILL
and the radio clock said six
          G#            A#           RIFF
and I was thinking up a reasonable excuse
  D#                   FILL
I might have slept til yesterday
    D#               FILL
but in the shape I'm in
       G#                A#              RIFF
what's twenty-four hours more or less to lose

Gm                              Cm
I've burned up letters and I've burned up souvenirs
Gm                           Cm
And left no traces Lord that I was ever here
    D#      G#    A#                 RIFF
And I won't be Louisiana lowdown and blue

  A#                           D#       FILL
I saw a stranger smiling at me yesterday
A#                              D#    FILL
And it scared me almost half to death
A#                                D#         FILL
I wanted to hide I wanted to run away from her
A#                                             RIFF
Instead I closed my eyes and she wasn't there
