[Verse 1]
                     C               G                   C
Ma jolie, how do you do, mon nom est Jean-Guy Thibault Leroux
                        C                G              C
I come from east of Gatineau, my name is Jean-Guy, ma jolie
            G                              C       F         C
J'ai une maison à Lafontaine, where we can live if you marry me
             G                               Am            F
Une belle maison à Lafontaine, where we will live, you and me
      C       F        C      G        C      F      C
Oh Louise, ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, ma jolie Louise

[Verse 2]
                   C              G                 C
Tous les matins au soleil, I will work 'til work is done
                   C             G                  C
Tous les matins au soleil, I did work 'til work was done
        G                            C       F            C
And one day, the foreman said, "Jean-Guy, we must let you go"
            G                          Am      F
Et puis mon nom, n’est pas bon, at the mill anymore
      C        F         C        G         C      F      C
Oh Louise, I'm losing my head I'm losing my head

[Verse 3]
                            C              G                  C
My kids are small, four and three et la bouteille, she's mon amie
                             C                 G                     C
I drink the rum 'til I can't see, it hides the shame Louise does not see
       G                                 C        F           C
A carousel turns in my head, and I can't hide, oh no, no, no, no
        G                              Am                F
And the rage turned in my head, and Louise, I struck her down
            C           F         C         G         C       F       C
Down on the ground, I'm losing my mind, I'm losing my mind

[Verse 4]
                      C               G                 C
En Septembre soixante-trois, kids are gone and so is Louise
                 C           G             C
Ontario they did go, near la ville de Toronto
       G                              C      F          C
Now my tears they roll down, tous les jours, whoa-oh-oh-oh 
        G                       Am               F
And I remember the days and the promises that we made
      C       F        C       G        C      F      C
Oh Louise, ma jolie Louise, ma jolie Louise
                  C            G               C
Ah-ah-ah ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
