Verse
               D               G           A 
I'm trying to figure out where everybody's gone 
           D                 G                   A 
I wonder when they're gonna turn the lights back on 
          D/F#            G             A 
I will be nice about it, I will be forgiving  
                 D/F#           G       A 
And I will act as if I wasn't ever put upon 
             D                 G      A 
But someone has put something over on me 
                    D             G                A 
They've pulled the wool down over me and I can't see 
         D/F#      G               A 
I can't identify exactly who's responsible 
                 D/F#            G                 A 
But I know where I am and so I know who it could be 


Chorus
        D              G             A 
Louisiana take this blanket off of me 
              D                   G                Em 
I know you're out there with your hands around my neck 
           A 
And I can feel your breath 
      Bm        G               A 
Now Louisiana take this thing away 
       Bm        G     A 
Louisiaaaaaaaaaaannnnnaaa 
       Bm        G      A 
Louisiaaaaaaaaaaannnnnaaa 
         Bm      D/A        G       E/G# 
You were not so bad and I won't be mad 
           D/A           A              D 
If you'll only take this blanket off of me

Although I'm glad that Louisiana is a place
So I don't have to spin in dark and empty space
I wish that everything went just as I wish everything would go 
I wish I didn't have the blanket on my face

Louisiana, take this blanket off of me
I know you're out there with your hands around my neck 
And I can feel your breath 
Now Louisiana, take this thing away
Louisiana
Louisiana

You were not so bad, and I won't be mad
If you'll only take this blanket off of me

Louisiana, take this blanket off of me
I know you're out there with your hands around my neck
And I can feel your breath
Now Louisiana, take this thing away
Louisiana
Louisiana

You were not so bad, and I won't be mad
If you'll only take this blanket off of me

Louisiana, take this blanket off of me
