CRESCENT CITY (Lucinda Williams)

[Actually in E, I tbink; capo 4.] 
Everybody's [C]had a few; [C] now they're talking about [G]who knows who[G]
I'm going back to the Cr[Am]escent City, where [F]everything's still the s[G]ame[G]
This town has said what it [C]has to say; [C] now I'm after that [G]back highway[G]
And the longest br[Am]idge I've ever cro[F]ssed, over Pontchartr[G]ain[G]
Tous les temps sont [Dm]temps (?),[Dm] that's all w[G]e'd say[G]
We used to d[Dm]ance[Dm] the night a[G]way[G]
Me and my [Dm]sister,[Dm] me and my [G]brot[G]her
We used to [Dm]walk[Dm] down by the [G]ri - [G]ver
Mama lives in Mandeville; I can hardly wait until
I can hear my Zydeco and "laissez les bons temps rouler"
And take rides in open cars; my brother knows where the best bars are
Let's see how these blues'll do in the town where the good times stay
Tous les temps sont temps (?), that's all we'd say
We used to dance the night away
Me and my sister, me and my brother
We used to walk down by the river
[C] [in[C]str[G]ume[G]nta[Am]l] [F] [G] [G]
[C] [in[C]str[G]ume[G]nta[Am]l] [F] [G] [G]
[Dm] [ins[Dm]trum[G]ent[G]al;[Dm] fad[Dm]e ou[G]t] [G]
