New Orleans Is Sinking

	  		This is pretty crude, but is sounds good 
additions/corrections welcome.  Previous post of the 
lick is included at the bottom.  There are no CRD versions  
of this song on the archive that I could find.  -Rick   
(use bar chords for G, A, B) 

Em                     G       Em          G 
Bourbon Blues, on the street, loose and complete 
       Em      G             Em     G 
Under skies of smokey blue -green 
I cant forsake a dixie dead shake 
       Em         G         Em    G 
So we danced the sidewalk clean 
   B                            A 
My memory is muddy, what?s this river that I?m in? 
Hey New Orleans is sinkin, man 
And I dont want to swim 

Back to Em/G shuffle for second verse  

Play an ?A? for the yelp (AHHHHHH-HAAA) 

From ?Pale as a I swear to GOD she said? do the Em/G shuffle 

then repeat the ?A? for the AHHHHHH-HAAA yelp 

then Em/G Em/G, then 

    B                           A 
My memory is muddy, what?s this river that I?m in? 
Hey New Orleans is sinkin, man 
And I dont want to swim 

Back to Em/G to close

I'm not really sure if this is correct, but this is how I play it:  
The main riff looks like:
