St. Gabriel Lyrics

All the sad songs about leaving
Not about coming home
I've been down in St. Gabriel
Nowhere to go.

The sun sets in St. Gabriel
Fiery red
And the fields all around
Are brown and dead.
In St. Gabriel, St. Gabriel

They said I killed a man
That threatened my life
But I went to prison
Because I was his wife.

And I had stood it
As long as I could
Oh, I went down
I went down to St. Gabriel
What I had to do.

Oh, St. Gabriel
St. Gabriel

It's a hopeless life
And it's a crying shame.
It was me or him
And I took the blame.

You can feel the rythmn
Through the walls
It shakes the leevee
It shakes us all.

In St. Gabriel
St. Gabriel.

Now they say I'm right
And I'm free to go.
So I'm standing out here
by the side of the road.
All the sad songs about leaving
Not about coming home
Oh, I've been down, down in St. Gabriel
With nowhere, nowhere to go.

In St. Gabriel, St. Gabriel, St. Gabriel.
