Walt, Give this a try.
I used the following youtube video to work out the chords:

I’m not sure all words are correct. If you notice any that aren’t let me know and I’ll fix them.

You may notice the youtube audio is a little bit off pitch. I made an mp3 from it and adjusted it. If you want it, let me know.

Hole In My Pirogue – Johnny Horton

[E] [B7] [E]

[E] Well I went out a fishin' to [B7] make a little [E] mon
To [A] take to Cajun Leena so [E] we could have some fun
[A] On the way back I knocked a [E] hole in my bow
I got a hole in my pirogue I [B7] can't go see my [E] gal

The prettiest sight that you [B7] ever have [E] seen
Is a [A] moonlight night down in [E] New Orleans
[A] I'm up the river [E] just around the bend
I got a hole in my pirogue I [B7] just can't haul it [E] in

Instrumental – Follows pattern of verse

[E] Well Cajun Leena's waitin' with [B7] tears in her [E] eyes
[A] Munchin' and a crunchin' on a [E] crawfish pie
[A] I can smell the File' a-[E]-floatin' through the air
I got a hole in my pirogue I [B7] can't go see my [E] chere

The prettiest sight that you [B7] ever have [E] seen
Is a [A] moonlight night down in [E] New Orleans
[A] I'm up the river [E] just round the bend
I got a hole in my pirogue I [B7] just can't haul it [E] in

Instrumental – Follows pattern of verse

[E] Yeah I'm here on the bayou [B7] sittin' all a-[E]-lone
With a [A] busted bottom and I [E] can't pole it home
[A] Cajun Leena's waitin' as [E] lonesome as can be
I got a hole in my pirogue I [B7] can't go see my [E] she

The prettiest sight that you [B7] ever have [E] seen
Is a [A] moonlight night down in [E] New Orleans
[A] I'm up the river [E] just around the bend
I got a hole in my pirogue I [B7] just can't haul it [E] in
