"Louisiana Lowdown" by Cowboy Mouth
>From the MCA album "Are You with Me?"
Previously from the Monkey Hill album "Mouthin' Off (Live+More)"
(Also from Sanchez's solo album "Jet Black And Jealous")
Written by Paul Sanchez, sung by Fred LeBlanc (previously by Sanchez)

D#=x68886  C#=x46664  G#=466544  A#=688766  Gm=355333  Cm=335543

The main RIFF used throughout the song is:
D# D#   C# C# C# C#    D# D#   C# C# C# D#
The timing is difficult to show on this, but if you listen to the intro
you
can figure it out.  Basically play a few D#'s, then C#'s, then almost
repeat
the pattern but quickly come back for a D# instead of the last C#.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/c/cowboy_mouth/louisiana_lowdown_crd.html ]
The little filler notes (FILL) are just a little "tickling" of the first
two strings (e and B) held at the 8th fret (just mash down your third
finger
which should be on the 8th fret from playing the D# anyway).

INTRO: RIFF

VERSES:
        D#                FILL
Well my eyelids said four-thirty
        D#               FILL
and the radio clock said six
          G#            A#           RIFF
and I was thinking up a reasonable excuse
  D#                   FILL
I might have slept til yesterday
    D#               FILL
but in the shape I'm in
       G#                A#              RIFF
what's twenty-four hours more or less to lose


CHORUS:
Gm                              Cm
I've burned up letters and I've burned up souvenirs
Gm                           Cm
And left no traces Lord that I was ever here
    D#      G#    A#                 RIFF
And I won't be Louisiana lowdown and blue


BRIDGE:
  A#                           D#       FILL
I saw a stranger smiling at me yesterday
A#                              D#    FILL
And it scared me almost half to death
A#                                D#         FILL
I wanted to hide I wanted to run away from her
A#                                             RIFF
Instead I closed my eyes and she wasn't there
