    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
