INTRO:
Dm
Oh, yeah, Cajun man, do all he can,
F             C     F   G
gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.

#1.
  C                 Am7
At birth, Mama 'n' Papa called their little boy Ned.
C               G   C
Raised him on the banks of the river bed.
C           Am7
A houseboat tied to a big, tall tree,
 C            G    C
A home for my Mama and my Papa and me.
  C             Am7
The clock strikes three, Papa jumps to his feet,
 C             G      C
already Mama's cookin' Papa somethin' to eat.
  C            Am7
At half-past, Papa, he's a-ready to go,
  C              G    C
He jumps in his pirogue, headed down the bayou.

CHORUS:
      F
He's got a fishin' line strung across a Louisiana river,
F             C   F
gotta catch a big fish for us to eat.
  F
He sets his traps in the swamps, catches anything he can..
F             C     F
Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.
F             C     F
Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.
  Dm
Oh, yeah, Cajun man, do all he can,
F             C     F  G
gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.

#2.
   C           Am7
They call Mama Rita and my Daddy, Jack.
  C             G    C
The little baby brother on the floor is Mack.
C           Am7
Bryn and Lynn are the family twins,
C            G     C
Big brother Ed's on the bayou fishin'.
C             Am7
On the river float Papa's great big boat,
C            G  C
that's how my Papa goes into town.
C           Am7
Takes every bit of the night and day
C                G   C
to even reach a place where the people stay.

CHORUS:
      F
He's got a fishin' line strung across a Louisiana river,
F             C   F
gotta catch a big fish for us to eat.
  F
He sets his traps in the swamps, catches anything he can..
F             C     F
Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.
F             C     F
Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.

#3.
C           Am7
I can hardly wait 'til tomorrow comes 'round.
C                G    C
That's the day my Papa takes his furs to town.
C            Am7
Papa said, 'Son, we got lines to run.'
C                 G     C
We come back again, 'cause there's work to be done.'

CHORUS:
      F
He's got a fishin' line strung across a Louisiana river,
F             C   F
gotta catch a big fish for us to eat.
  F
He sets his traps in the swamps, catches anything he can..
F             C     F
Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.
F             C     F
Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.
  Dm
Oh, yeah, Cajun man, do all he can,
F             C     F
gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.
F             C     F
gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.
