          This is the small riff that's played right before the chorus.
          
          Riff 1:
          
          e|--------------0--

          VERSE 1:
              G               Cadd9                 G
          The Texas sun beats down upon me like the Devil's smile.
              G                  Cadd9     G
          I'd rather be anywhere else than here.
                   G                Cadd9
          Was it a blinding lack of subtlety 
                    G 
          Or just a lack of style
              G                      Cadd9    G     Riff 1
          Responding to the ways and means of fear?
          
          CHORUS:
          Em7                 G
          Take me back to New Orleans
              Cadd9         D
          And drop me at my door.
                 Am                C
          'Cause I might love you, yeah,
                        G
          But I love me more.
          
          VERSE 2:
             G              Cadd9                       G
          My fingertips are bitten 'til there's nothing left but skin.
              G                Cadd9      G
          I'd rather be anyone else right now.
              G                    Cadd9   
          The light that shone within my eyes
                    G
          Is slowly growing dim.
          G                          Cadd9                G   Riff 1
          She told me where, told me when, but never said how.
          
          CHORUS:
          Em7                 G
          Take me back to New Orleans
                    Cadd9          D  Dsus2 D
          And don't call me anymore.
                 Am     Asus2 Am   C
          'Cause I might love you, yeah,
                        G
          But I love me more.
          
          BRIDGE:
               Cadd9
          (She said) How can I make this unhappen?
             G                Em7
          (I said) You cannot make this unhappen.
          D       Dsus2 D                   G
          Choose before your choices fade away.
               Cadd9
          (She said) I could be home by tomorrow
               G                Em7
          (She said) If I could beg, steal, or borrow.
          Am                                    C
          I said you're there, you might as well stay.
          
          VERSE 3:
              G              Cadd9                G
          The morning mist arises through another crack in the glass.
              G                 Cadd9   G
          The lack of sleep has made me numb.
              G                  Cadd9
          But sometimes when she sleeps
                                 G
          She'll turn and she'll whisper his name.
               G                              Cadd9                  G    Riff 1
          That cake must taste great but I'll pass when you offer me some.
          
          CHORUS:
          Em7                  G
          Take me back to New Orleans
              Cadd9         D  Dsus2 D
          And drop me at my door.
                 Am                C
          'Cause I might love you, yeah,
                        G    Riff 1
          But I love me more.
          
          END CHORUS:
          Em7                  G
          Take me back to New Orleans
                    Cadd9       D  Dsus2 D
          And don't call me anymore.
                 Am                C
          'Cause I might love you, yeah.
          Am                Cadd9
          I might love you, yeah.
          Am                C
          I might love you, yeah,
                           G
          But I love me more.
          F          G
          I love me more.
          F          G   F   G  End on G
          I love me more.
