Take Me to the Mardi Gras

                     C
C'mon take me to the Mardi Gras
                           G7
Where the people sing and play
Where the dancing is elite
And there's music in the street
               C
Both night and day

tacet                 C
Hurry take me to the Mardi Gras
                   G7
In the city of my dreams
You can legalize your lows
You can wear your summer clothes
             C     C7
In the New Orleans

                         F
And I will lay my burden down
                        F9
Rest my head upon that shore
                             Eb
And when I wear that starry crown
                      Gm   G7
I won't be wanting anymore

tacet                    C
Take your burdens to the Mardi Gras
                        C7
Let the music wash your soul
You can mingle in the street
You can jingle to the beat
         C
