Ricky Nelson - Down Along The Bayou Country Lyrics

Ricky Nelson Lyrics

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
