[Intro]
   Em    G       Em  Em7     A  A4 A
|  /  /  /  /  |  /   /   |  /  /  /  /  |


[Verse 1]
Em                  G               Em        Em7          A   A4  A
    Mama said she don't give a damn  ...what those people say,
Em                       G            Em       Em7   A    A4  A
    Cane smoke can't be good for you   ...day after day, 
C                    G                    D                     Em
    Every year at harvest time, when the black smoke filled the sky,
C                         G
    She'd pick me up and take me home,
     D       D4  D               C    D
And make me        ...stay in - side------!


[Chorus]
C                 G                D           Em
   Thibodaux to Raceland, there's fire in the fields,
 C                   G                D                Em
All the way up the bayou, from La - fourche to Iber - ville,
       C            G            D            Em
Dirty air, dirty laundry, dirty money, dirty rain,
    C              G       D      D4        D    Em   G
A dirty dark at daybreak burning   ...the sugar cane------!
                                              |  /  /  /  /  |

   Em  Em7   A  A4 A
|  /   /  |  /  /  /  /  |


[Verse 2]
Em                    G       Em       Em7        A    A4  A
    Christmas on the bayou, midnight's come and gone,
Em                    G          Em           Em7        A   A4 A
    Driving past the sugar mill,     all the lights are on,
C                       G
    The parking lot is full of trucks,
       D               Em    C                      G
I can see the furnace glow,    everybody's working overtime,
        D        D4  D          C    D
It's a good job      ...even though-------...


[Chorus]
           C           G                D           Em
...From Thibodaux to Raceland, there's fire in the fields,
 C                   G                D               Em
All the way up the bayou from La - fourche to Iber - ville,
       C            G            D            Em
Dirty air, dirty laundry, dirty money, dirty rain,
    C              G       D      D4         D    Em    G
A dirty dark at daybreak burning    ...the sugar cane------!
                                                |  /  /  /  /  |

  Em Em7    A  A4  A       Em    G       Em  Em7   A  A4 A
|  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |


[Verse 3]
Em                   G          Em        Em7      A    A4  A
    First came the sugar cane, then came Thibo - daux,
Em               G                    Em    Em7          A    A4 A
    Cane sugar built this town, cane sugar paved these roads,
C                              G            D                    Em
    They burn the leaves to harvest cash, money for the compan - y,
C                     G                D    D4  D           C     D
    Money makes the world go 'round, money,     ...money, money------! 


[Chorus]
         C          G                D           Em
From Thibodaux to Raceland, there's fire in the fields,
 C                   G                D                Em
All the way up the bayou from La - fourche to Iber - ville,
       C            G            D            Em
Dirty air, dirty laundry, dirty money, dirty rain,
    C              G           D     D4 D               C      D
A dirty dark at daybreak ...burning------,  ...yeah, burning-------! 


[Verse 4]
      C                G             D               Em
The soot and ash are falling like a dark and deadly snow,
C                        G             D            Em
    The air is full of poison to the Gulf of Mexi - co,
       C            G             D           Em
Dirty air, dirty laundry, dirty money, dirty rain,
    C                   G       D    D4        D     Em    G
A dirty deal with the Devil, burning  ...the sugar cane--------!
                                                  |  /  /  /  /  |

  Em  Em7   A  A4  A       Em    G       Em  Em7   A  
|  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  |  /  ||
