Charley Pride – Pirogue Joe lyrics

Pirogue Joe - Charley Pride

Down in Louisiana where the bayou blows
Lives a little man called Pirogue Joe
He wears a red shirt and a pole cat cap
And when he walks his gum boots flip flop flap

He's got a puppet on a string and a trick yo-yo
And a pup in his pocket called Tee Me Moe
He puts on a show everywhere he goes
That's why they love little Pirogue Joe

[musical interlude]

He's fast as a lightening quick as a cat
He can out run the best musk rat
He can make a pirogue go go go
That's why they call him Pirogue Joe

He's a happy go lucky son of a gun
He always has a lot of fun
He laughs and jokes everywhere he goes
That's why they love little Pirogue Joe

[musical interlude]

He's got a spot where he likes to go
The girls all dance with Pirogue Joe
He swings them high to a doe si doe
Down where they do the fain doe doe

Eats po'boy shrimp drinks strawberry wine
Dance all night have a good time
They all keep time to the fiddler's bow
That's why they love little Pirogue Joe

[muslcal interlude to fade]
