Down Along The Bayou Country

Ricky Nelson

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 good 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 never, 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
