Louisiana Bayou Lyrics

No no momma now devil don't do si do
Two young boys lyin' dead by the side of the road
The coins in their eyes represent the money they owe
No judge or jury ever gonna hear the story told

Down by the bayou
Try to play with the caine, you ah

Try to play with the caine, you ah
Say my story again
(Louisiana) down by the bayou
Try to play with the caine, you ah
Try to play with the caine, you ah
Same old story again, you ah

Louisiana bayou

Sweet girl daddy done beat that girl like he's insane
Brother can't watch him beat that girl down again
So late one night cookin' up with a couple of friends
Swears his daddy never gonna see another day

Down by the bayou
Try to play with the caine, you ah
Try to play with the caine, you ah
Say my story again, you ah
(Louisiana) down by the bayou
Try to play with the caine, you ah
Try to play with the caine, you ah
Say my story again, you ah

Louisiana bayou

No, no, Mama, the Devil done do-si-do
see 2 young boys lined up on the side of the road
Shame shame

Oh it's a shame to lose your way running wild
It's a shame to lose the light that shines (shame shame)
Oh it's a shame to lose your way as a child
Oh it's a shame to lose your...

Money on the bed but you ain't got to go
Sold your soul just trying to get over low
No empty pocket gonna keep you from getting yours
No judge or jury ever gonna hear the story told

Down by the bayou
Try to play with the caine, you ah
Try to play with the caine, you ah
Same old story again, you ah

Down by the bayou
Try to play with the caine, you ah
Try to play with the caine, you ah
Say my story again, you ah
No, no, Mama, tryin' Devil done do-si-do
Two young boys lyin' dead by the side of the road

(Louisiana bayou) Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine, you ah
Tryin' to get with the pain, you ah
Say my story again, you ah

Louisiana bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine, you ah
Tryin' to play with the 'caine, you ah
Troubles do it again

Same old story again (Louisiana bayou)
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Say my story again

(Louisiana bayou) Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine, you ah
Tryin' to play with the 'caine, you ah
Say my story again

(Louisiana bayou) Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine

Oh it's a shame to lose your way running wild (same old story again)
Oh it's a shame to lose the light that shines
Oh it's a shame to lose your way as a child
Oh (same old story again) it's a shame to lose your...
Down by the bayou

Louisiana bayou...

Louisiana bayou...
