    Hey Folks

    Welcome to the sketchbook sessions, where we drink Whiskey and sing old folk songs.


    This song is called "Lakes Of Pontchartrain"


    Lakes of Pontchartrain
    Christy Moore

    T'was on one bright March morning I bid New Orleans adieu
    And I took the rode to Jackson town, me fortune to renew
    I cursed all foreign money, no credit could I gain
    Which set me heart to longin' for the Lakes of Pontchartain.


    I stepped on board of a railroad car beneath the pouring rain
    And I rode the rails 'til evening and I laid me down again
    No friends to me ,all strangers here, 'til a dark girl towards me came
    And I fell in love with a Creole girl from the Lakes of Pontchartrain.


    I said my pretty Creole girl, me money here's no good
    If it weren't for the alligators I'd sleep out in the wood
    You're welcome here kind stranger, our house it's very plain
    But we never turn a stranger away by Lakes of Pontchartrain.


    She took me to her mammy's house and she treated me quite well
    The hair upon her shoulders in jet black ringlets fell
    To try and paint her beauty I'm sure t'would be in vain
    So handsome was my Creole girl by the Lakes of Pontchartrain.


    I asked her if she'd marry me, she'd said it could never be
    For she had got a lover and he was far at sea
    She said that she would wait for him and true she would remain
    'Til he returned for his Creole girl by the Lakes of Pontchartrain.


    So fair thee well me Creole girl may I see thee never more
    But I'll ne'er forget your kindness and the cottage by the shore
    And at each social gathering a flowin' glass I'll drain
    And drink a health to me Creole girl from the Lakes of Pontchartrain.


    Twas on one bright May mornin I bid Ponchartrain adieu
    And I headed back to Erins Isle ,my fortunes now renewed.
    Ill take with me sweet memory which ever shall remain.
    As I bid farewell to my Creole girl and The Lakes of
