G                                       Cadd9 
When I was young and full of dreams,   
G                               C 
My whole life in front of me.   
C                               G 
But things are not always the way they seem,   
G                               D 
Some dreams just don’t come true.    


G                                       Cadd9 
Futures so bright so everyone said 
G                               C 
Made more money than my poppa ever did 
C                       G 
He was the answer for which I’d prayed  
C       D      Cadd9 
When the industry comes to town.    


 G                                      Cadd9 
Married a girl from Poetry Bridge,   
G                       C 
Raised a family of Cajun kids,   
C                       G 
Nobody did no better than we did,   
G                       D 
But things can always change.    

G                                               Cadd9 
My pappa'd been a trapper living hand to mouth,   
G                                       C 
But when I made shop foreman, I had it all figured out,   
C                       G 
I thanked god each and everyday  
C       D      Cadd9 
When the industry came to town.  


Cadd9 G Sunset on Louisianne, C D The sun going down on the promised land, Cadd9 G I’ve given you everything I can, C D Cadd9 I’ve got nothing left to lose.
G Cadd9 My sister lost her baby premature, G C And my papa got the sickness that got no cure, C G What they told us about it at the plant, G D We could not be sure. G Cadd9 My boy went to College down in Baton Rouge G C Came back talkin' bout the old Bayou C G Sure the fish don’t bite like they used to C D Cadd9 Since the industry come to town

Bridge: C G Smokestacks burning on the river, Am D From New Orleans to Baton Rouge. C G How can I go on believing ? F D When they won’t tell me the truth. G Cadd9 I take my grand son fishing down at Campania Pass, G C I hope some of this beauty will last, C G But, lord, it’s changing so damn fast… G D Each and every day. G Cadd9 I love the river and I love the swamp, G C The snowy egret and the old bullfrog, C G But they’re harder to find one and all C D Cadd9 Since the industry came to town.
Cadd9 G Sunset on Louisianne, C D The sun going down on the promised land, Cadd9 G I’ve given you everything I can, C D C Since the Industry come to town… C D C Since the Industry… Come… To town
