Bus To Baton Rouge Lyrics

I had to go back to that house one more time
To see if camellias were in bloom
For so many reasons it's been on my mind
The house on Belmont Avenue

Built up on cinder blocks off of the ground
What with the rain and the soft swampy land
By the sweet honeysuckle that grew all around
Were switches when we were bad

I took a bus to Baton Rouge
I took a bus to Baton Rouge

All the front rooms were kept closed off
I never liked to go in there much
Sometimes the doors they'd be locked
'Cause there were precious things that I couldn't touch

Company couch covered in plastic
Books about being saved
The dining room table nobody ate at
The piano nobody played

I took a bus to Baton Rouge
I took a bus to Baton Rouge

There was this beautiful lamp I always loved
A seashore was painted on the shade
It would turn around when you switched on the bulb
And gently rock the waves

The driveway was covered with tiny white seashells
A fig tree stood in the backyard
There are other things I remember, as well
But to tell them would be just too hard

Ghosts in the wind that blow through my life
Follow me wherever I go
I'll never be free from these chains inside
Hidden deep down in my soul

I took a bus to Baton Rouge
I took a bus to Baton Rouge
Yeah, I took a bus to Baton Rouge
