Leaving Louisiana in the Broad Daylight  The Oak Ridge Boys

Mary took to run[C]ning with a traveling man
Left her momma crying with her head in her hands
Such a [F]sad case so broken [C]hearted
She said momma I got to go I gotta get out of here
I gotta get out of town I'm tired of hanging around
I gotta [F]roll on between the [C]ditches
It's just an ordinary story bout the way things go
Round and round nobody knows
But the [F]highway goes on [C]forever
That old [F]highway rolls on [C]forever
Lord she never would have done it if she hadn't got drunk
If she hadn't started running with a traveling man
If she [F]hadn't started taking those crazy [C]chances
She said daughter let me tell you bout the traveling kind
Everywhere he's going such a very short time
He'll be [F]long gone before you know [C]it
He'll be [F]long gone before you know [C]it
She said [Am]never have I known it when it [G7]felt so good
[F]Never have I knew it when I [C]knew I could
[Am]Never have I done it when it [G7]looked so right
[F]Leaving Louisiana in the broad daylight
This is down in the swampland anything goes
It's alligator bait and the bars don't close
It's the [F]real thing down in Louisi[C]ana
Did you ever see a Cajun when he really got mad
When he really got trouble like a daughter gone bad
It gets [F]real hot down in Louisi[C]ana
The stranger better move it or he's gonna get killed
He's gonna have to get it or a shotgun will
It ain't [F]no time for lengthy [C]speeches
There ain't [F]no time for lengthy [C]speeches
She said [Am]never have I known it when it [G7]felt so good
[F]Never have I knew it when I [C]knew I could
[Am]Never have I done it when it [G7]looked so right
[F]Leaving Louisiana in the broad daylight
She said [Am]never have I known it when it [G7]felt so good
[F]Never have I knew it when I [C]knew I could
[Am]Never have I done it when it [G7]looked so right
[F]Leaving Louisiana in the broad daylight
It's just an ordinary story bout the way things go
Round and round nobody knows
But the [F]highway goes on [C]forever
That old [F]highway rolls on [C]forever
