QUEEN OF NEW ORLEANS (G) git DADGAD 5th

2008 Feuerstein/Jackson

Her eyes they shine they shine like diamonds
Her waist long hair as black as night
She stole my heart and left me breathless
The night we danced till the morning light

I thought that I had found my true love
I was blind to blind to see
The night the fool from Louisiana
Met the Queen of New Orleans

I tried to put my arms around her
To whisper sweet things in her ear
She pushed me off and spat upon me
And laughed so loud I shed a tear

I thought that I had found my true love
How could she treat me so mean
The night the fool from Louisiana
Met the Queen of New Orleans

So now you’ve listened to my story
As I lay dyin' from my wounds
Stabbed in the chest as I was pleading
For the love I knew from the start was doomed

I thought that I found my true love
I was blind too blind too see
The night the fool from Louisiana
Met the Queen of New Orleans
