Tony Carey – Along The Pontchartrain lyrics

Alright
I'm sittin' here in Vegas
I got a 29 dollar room
And the lobby is outrageous
All lit up like high noon
The players keep on playin'
The wheels go round and round
And baby I can hear you sayin'
What the hell you doin' in that town

And the letter that you wrote me
Torn to pieces baby right there in the rain
Yeah, yeah
I threw the pieces in the water
Down along Lake Pontchartrain

I came out here a young boy
Just about a week or two ago
Yeah, right after I found out
Things I didn't really wanna know
I heard all about yours travels
The who's, the where's, the when's
And a piece of me unravelled
Never gonna see you again

And the letter that you wrote me
Torn to pieces baby right there in the rain
Yeah, yeah
I threw the pieces in the water
Down along the Pontchartrain

And the band keeps on playin'
The waiters bring the drinks
And the high rollers, rollin' em' all night long
I made it here I'm stayin' on, longer than you think
Cause you sold me down the river for a song
I'm never goin' back that way again, no
Along the Pontchartrain
Yeah yeah

Along the Pontchartrain - Along the Pontchartrain

And the Letter that you wrote me
Torn to pieces baby right there out in the rain
Yeah yeah
I threw the pieces in the water
Down along Lake Ponchartrain

I threw it all into the water
Yeah down along the Ponchartrain
I threw it all into the water yeah
Down along, down along the Ponchartrain
Yeah, yeah
Along the Ponchartrain
