1.T’was on a bright March morning I bid New Orleans adieu
2.I stepped on board a railroad car in the early mornin’ rain
3.I said my lovely Creole girl my money here is no good
4.She took me to her mummy’s house and she treated me quite well
5.I asked her if she would marry me she said that can never be
6.Its fare thee well my Creole girl I’ll never see you no more

1.I took the road to Jackson town my fortune to renew
2.I rode and rode till evening and I laid me down again
3.If it weren’t for the alligators I sleep out in the woods
4.The hair upon her shoulders in jet-black ringlets fell
5.For she had got a lover he was far at sea
6.But I’ll ne’er forget your kindness in the cottage by the shore

1. I cursed all foreign money no credit could I gain
2.All strangers here no friends to me till a dark girl towards me came
3.You’re welcome here kind stranger our house is very plain
4.To try and paint her beauty t’would surely be in vain
5.She promised that she would wait for him faithful she would remain
6.And at every social gatherin’ a flowing glass I’ll raise

2.I fell in love with the Creole girl from the Lakes of Ponchartrain
3.But we never turned a stranger out on the Lakes of Ponchartrain 
4.So charmin’ was that Creole girl from the Lakes of Ponchartrain
5.Till he returned to his Creole girl from the Lakes of Ponchartrain
6.And I’ll drink to the health of my Creole girl from the Lakes of Ponchartrain.
