I couldnt clearly hear them on the recording. If you know what  
they are please let me know. Thanks. 

 

Fiddle Intro  Follow pattern of first verse 

(D) At first mom and papa called little boy Ned 
They raised him on the banks of the (A) river (D) bed 
A houseboat tied to a big tall tree  
A home for my mama and my (A) papa and (D) me 

The clock strikes three, papa jumps to his feet 
Already mama's cookin' papa (A) somethin' to (D) eat 
At half past, papa he's ready to go 
He hops in his pirogue, headed (A) down the bay-(D)-ou 

They got (G) fishin' lines strung across the Louisiana River 
Gonna catch a big fish for (D) us to (G) eat 
They're settin' traps in the swamp catchin' everythin' they can 
Gonna make a livin' he's a Louisiana man 
Gonna make a livin' he's a (D) Louisiana (G) man 

Verse 4 
(D) Muskart hides  hangin' by the dozen 
Even got a lady make a (A) muskart's (D) cousin 
*Lot of them* a-dryin' in the hot, hot sun 
Tomorrow papa's gonna turn them (A) into (D) mon 

Fiddle  Follow pattern of verse 4 x2 

(D) They call my mama Rita and my daddy Jack 
A little baby brother on the (A) floor that's (D) Mac 
Rynn and Lynn are the family twins 
Big brother Ed's on the (A) bayou (D) fishin' 

On the river floats papa's great big boat 
That's how my papa goes (A) into (D) town 
Takes every bit of the night and the day 
To even reach a place where the (A) people (D) stay 

(G) I can hardly wait until tomorrow comes around 
That's the day my pappy takes his (D) furs to (G) town 
Papa promised me that I could go 
Even gonna see a (D) cowboy (G) show 

I see the (D) cowboys and Indians for the first time then 
Told my pappy, gonna (A) go a-(D)-gain 
Pappy said, son we got the lines to run 
We'll come back again but first there's (A) work to be (D) done 

They got (G) fishin' lines strung across the Louisiana River 
Gonna catch a big fish for (D) us to (G) eat 
They're settin' traps in the swamp catchin' everythin' they can 
Gonna make a livin' he's a Louisiana man 
Gonna make a livin' he's a (D) Louisiana (G) man 
Gonna make a livin' he's a Louisiana man. 
Gonna make a livin' he's a (D) Louisiana (G) man
