      About "On The Banks Of The Old Ponchartrain"

      Lyrics for Hank Williams - "On The Banks Of The Old Ponchartrain"

      I [A] travelled from [A7] Texas to [D] old Louis-[A] anne
      Through valleys, o'er mountains and [E7] plains
      Both [A] footsore and [A7] weary I [D] rested a-[A] while
      On The [E7] Banks Of The Old Ponchar-[A] train.

      The fairest young maiden that I ever saw
      Passed by as it started to rain
      We both found a shelter beneath the same tree
      On The Banks Of The Old Ponchartrain.

      We hid from the shower an hour or so
      She asked me how long I'd remain
      I told her that I'd spend the rest of my days
      On The Banks Of The Old Ponchartrain.

      I just couldn't tell her that I ran away
      From jail on a West Texas plain
      I prayed in my heart I would never be found
      On The Banks Of The Old Ponchartrain.

      Then one day a man put his hand on my arm
      And said I must go west again
      I left her alone without saying goodbye
      On The Banks Of The Old Ponchartrain.

      Tonight as I sit here alone in my cell
      I know that she's waiting in vain
      I'm hoping and praying someday to return
      To The Banks Of The Old Ponchartrain.
