Creative Brief

I created this song imagining what it might be like to say goodbye to my beloved home one day, and then expanded upon that include the cultural environmental destruction of the city.  

 

I play the song in C with a capo on the 3rd fret. I'll write out the chords relative to the capo

 

Verse 1

C               Am     Dm7           F

I will remember fog on the river

C            Am         Dm7                      G

and the distant drums of parade practice in late winter

C              Am        Dm7               F

I'll be reminded of when I first arrived and a

C             Am        Dm7                  G 

Summer rain came down to say hello

C              Am        Dm7                   F

I can't believe it,  am I really leaving this

C             Am           G 

Endless 2nd Line behind

 

Chorus

F                G            C       G            F

I wave goodbye as a tear escapes my eye

F                      G           C G F

yes I wave goodbye to New Orleans

F                          G

Yes I wave goodbye, one more

C       G                          F

ride uptown on the streetcar line

F                G                     C

I wave goodbye to New Orleans

 

Verse 2

C                        Am

Time turns the pages

Dm7                            F

lights out scene changes, but it's

C                    Am                  G

different when you are the change

C                       Am

Outside interests buying

Dm7                  F

Gentry folk -fying until

C               Am        G

the magic is all displaced

C              Am         F

And here I am a transplant

Dm7                        G

can't ignore the fact that I

C                Am                 G

earned myself skin in the game

 

Chorus

F                G            C       G            F

I wave goodbye as a tear escapes my eye

F                      G           C G F

yes I wave goodbye to New Orleans

F                          G

Yes I wave goodbye, to my

C       G                          F

home I can barely recognize 

F                G                     C

I wave goodbye to New Orleans

 

Bridge

Am  Em

 

Verse 3

C                        Am

River's all been levied

Dm7                            F

city's growing heavy, and it's

C                    Am                  G

sinking in, a little every day

C                       Am

salt water creeping

Dm7                  F

broken pipeline leaking, and the

C               Am        G

cypress wood, it all decays 

C              Am         F

storms growing stronger

Dm7                        G

can't be much longer until

C                Am                 G

a cat-6-'cane blow us all away

 

Chorus

F                G            C       G            F

I wave goodbye as a tear escapes my eye

F                      G           C G F

yes I wave goodbye to New Orleans

F                          G

Yes I wave goodbye, as

C       G                          F

the Gulf water rises 

F                G                     C

I wave goodbye to New Orleans
