Down Along The Bayou Country Lyrics

It was down along the bayou country Down around New Orleans You took my hand, you said your my man We'll have a good life you and me

It was down along the bayou country Down in the Cajun land Momma said: son, you know before you're done You're gonna wind up with a gun in your hand

Then I heard that train whistle moanin' It was rolling on down the line I got thoughts to straighten out Places to know about I'll be home in no time

Then I hopped a train down in Lockport I headed cross Hattiesburg I think I knew then I wouldn't see you again Goodbye was the last thing I heard

Then I met a man up in Greenville He said he'd give me some real good advice He said: you gotta get smart, I did Here take this gun, and kid, remember to never look twice

Now living to me has meant heartache Life was always something to use As I look back again, I never could win I guess I was put down here to lose

Now I'm alone and locked in Montgomery You see I robbed a bank and shot a man Their gonna hang me tomorrow I wish I could borrow my life to live over again
