I'll tell it Amlike it happened, it was Darius and Noland and Dmme, Just a fEew po' boys trying to get up out of MissourAmi. Took 55 tAmo Louisiana, stopped down by the highway to eaDmt. They both Ehad crawfish. Strictly chicken forAm me. Back out unAmder thunderheads, the radio was Southern sDmoul. They interrAmupted Clarence Carter with a strange-ass localC show. They were Esayin'... "Come dAmown to Lake PonEtchartrain. Rest yoCur soul and feed yoGur brain. That's Amwhere you will geEt to see EverythCing the wateGr canAm be." The rain wasAm comin' down, the wind was howlin' outside of SlidelDml. It was the kEind of night that makes you think the whole world's goin'Am to hell. We got offAm on an exit 'cause we couldn't read the map so greatDm. Near the CEhoctaw Motel, we parked to deliberatAme, When out oAmf the bayou came a man like the lake had a tongDmue. He was righEt up on the glass, all yellow-eyed, black teeth, Ambangin' on the windshield, Screamin' like a demon at the top of his lungEs, "ComeAm down to Lake PontcharEtrain. Rest yCour soul and feed yoGur brain. Free foAmr you and all your Efriends. CrawfiCsh 'til the bitteGr end. Come doAmwn to Lake PontchEartrain. Wade Cto where the shallGows break. That's Amwhere you will getE to see EverytChing the waterG can bAme." I was drivin' out of there as fast as a Camry coulDmd, But the interstate Ewas flooded, so I had to take the road through the wooAmds. Bad move Amin retrospect; the road disappeared in the raDmin, And I stoodE on the brakes when I saw the sign: "Lake PonEtchartrain..." Darius was Amyelling that he saw somebody out in the swells; He jumped out, runnin', and Noland was goinE' as well. "Come backAm!" Why the hell would they leave the caDmr? And that's Ewhen I heard it, make noE mistake - The voices wEere calling them from undeEr the lake... "Come down to Lake Pontchartrain... Come down to Lake Pontchartrain... Come down to Lake Pontchartrain... Come down to Lake Pontchartrain..." The crawfisAmh were screaming, the waves danDmced in time. My friends Ewent in deeper; the water, it cliAmmbed. I watched iAmn terror; the lake opDmened wide, And horriblEy roaring, it pulled themAm inside. That's howAm it happened! Why would DmI lie? There were Eno bodies, I've got nonAme to hide. I'm just Dma poor boy, lost his friendsAm in the rain. Any more Equestions, just go and ask Lake PontchartraAmin.
And it ends with this progression:

Am G C Am

And thats it! This is my attempt to learn it by ear, feel free to correct me, Peace.
