That Was Your Mother  Paul Simon

A long time ago,[F] yeah before you was born dude
when I was still [C]single and life[F] was great
I held this job as a traveling salesman
that[C] kept me moving f[F]rom state to state
[F]Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette
State of Louisiana
[C]Wondering where a city boy cou[F]ld go
To get a little conversation
Drink a little red wine
[C]Catch a little bit of those Cajun girls
[F]Dancing to Zydeco
[F]Along come a young girl, she's pretty as a prayerbook
Sweet as an [C]apple on Christ[F]mas day
I said good gracious can this be my luck
If that's m[C]y prayerbook, Lord l[F]et us pray
[F]Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette
State of Louisiana
[C]Wondering where a city boy cou[F]ld go
To get a little conversation
Drink a little red wine
[C]Dance to the music of Clifton Chenier
[F]The King of the Bayou
[F]Well, that was your mother, and that was your father
Before you was [C]born dude, when life [F]was great
You are the burden of my generation
I sure do[C] love you. Let's get [F]that straight
[F]Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette
Across the street from The Public
[C]Heading down to the Lone Star[F] Cafe
Maybe get a little conversation
Drink a little red wine
[C]Standing in the shadow of Clifton Chenier
[F]Dancing the night [C]awa[F]y
