Take A City Bride  Gene Parsons























[E]Whoa yay [B]guy, chertay [E]bebe
Told mama et told [B]papa
Di joh dit zhay dit par [E]bon
[E]I got a house on stilts, a [B7]five dollar bill
A settin' on the banks of [E]muddy muddy bayou
Lot better than the [B7]streets of crowded cars
Pawn shops, friendly neighborhood [E]bars
[E]Ah but your mama and your papa won't let me come courtin'
They [B7]says I can't make a good livin' for their [E]child
[E]Ah but the fish bites good, the crawfish are plenty
Gonna [B7]make a lot of money when I take a city [E]bride
[E]I got a paint can't run, your [B7]pappy's got a big dog
Snappin' at my heels, get [E]away you mangy hound
[E]Light's still burning, and the [B7]ladder by the window
Take a chance gonna make another [E]round
[E]Ah but your mama and your papa won't let me come courtin'
They [B7]says I can't make a good livin' for their [E]child
[E]Ah but the fish bites good, the crawfish are plenty
Gonna [B7]make a lot of money when I take a city [E]bride
[E]Yea but your mama and your papa won't let me come courtin'
They [B7]says I can't make a good livin' for their [E]child
[E]Ah but the fish bites good, the crawfish are plenty
Gonna [B7]make a lot of money when I take a city [E]bride
