On The Banks Of The Old Pontchartrain
Co-written and recorded by Hank Williams
Co-writer Ramona Vincent
[3/4 time]

C               C7       F        C
I traveled from Texas to old Louisanne
                                   G7
Through valleys over mountains and plains
     C            C7      F       C  
Both footsore and weary I rested awhile
       G7                       C            
On the banks of the old Pontchartrain

                  C7          F      C 
The fairest young maiden that I ever saw
                           G7
Passed by as it started to rain
   C            C7        F              C
We both found a shelter beneath the same tree
       G7                       C
On the banks of the old Pontchartrain

                C7        F       C
We hid from the shower an hour or so
                           G7
She asked me how long I'd remain
  C             C7            F          C   
I told her that I'd spend the rest of my days
       G7                       C
On the banks of the old Pontchartrain

                C7            F      C
I just couldn't tell her that I ran away
                          G7  
From jail on a West Texas plain
  C            C7            F        C  
I prayed in my heart I would never be found
       G7                       C
On the banks of the old Pontchartrain

               C7          F          C               
Then one day a man put his hand on my arm
                         G7
And said I must go west again
  C              C7      F          C 
I left her alone without saying goodbye
       G7                       C
On the banks of the old Pontchartrain

                 C7    F          C         
Tonight as I sit here alone in my cell
                             G7
I know that she's waiting in vain
    C          C7          F        C 
I'm hoping and praying someday to return
       G7                       C
On the banks of the old Pontchartrain
