Intro: G,D,C,D
Verse 1
[G]He was twenty-five, [D]she was twenty-eight
He was [C]home grown country
She'd just [D]pulled off the interstate
She [G]bought a Dr. Pepper, ten [D]dollars worth of gas
She was [C]obviously lost but [D]too afraid to ask di[G]rections[D]
So he [G]offered her a smile and a [D]stick of Beech Nut gum
He said [C]where you headed to girl, where are you [D]coming from
She said‚?¶(chorus)
G D C C-D (quick strums)
New Orleans but that's another story

[G]When she dropped the kids off at the [D]mother's day out
All the [C]ladies had their questions
But knew [D]not to ask about (Chorus)
Verse 3 (same chords)
Wednesday night supper at the First Baptist Church
Stranger standin' in the doorway
As they're passin' out the dessert
He said go on and pack your bags
Cause I'm here to take you home
I'm goin' back to Louisiana
And woman I ain't gonna go with out you
There's a few defining moments in every person's life
When you know what you've done wrong
And you know what you've done right
And before the congregation and her husband and her kids
She says, "How dare you even speak to me
After everything you did"
That's another town, that's another life
