Brother Louie

	  		Brother Louie:Stories. 
#1 in 1973. 

#1. (Original key.) 
Am                   Dm 
She was black as the night. 
Am                    Dm 
Louie was whiter than white. 
Am                  Dm 
Danger, danger when you taste brown sugar, 
Em            Dm       Am 
Louie fell in love overnight. 

Am                  Dm 
Nothing was good. 
Am                         Dm 
Louie had the best girl he could. 
When she took him home to meet her  
mama and papa, 
Em         Dm            Am 
Louie knew just where he stood. 

Am                   Dm 
Louie, Louie, Louie, Loo-ee. 
Am                   Dm 
Louie, Louie, Louie, Loo-eye. 
Am                   Dm 
Louie, Louie, Louie, Loo-ee. 
Em            Dm           Am 
Louie, Louie, you're gonna cry. 

Am                    Dm 
There he stood in the night. 
Am                               Dm 
Knowing what's wrong from what's right. 
   Am                        Dm 
He took her home to meet his mama and papa, 
Em            Dm       Am 
Man, he had a terrible fight. 

A                     Dm 
Louie nearly caused a scene. 
Am               Dm 
Wishin' it was a dream. 
Ain't no difference if you're black or white, 
Em            Dm          Am 
Brothers, you know what I mean. 


A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
