Jerry Jeff Walker – It Don't Matter lyrics

Jerry Jeff Walker, John Inmon, Keith Sykes

Oh these days, I'm a nervous wreck,
Trying to live my life so politically correct
Don't smoke here, don't you stand over there
Drink bottled water, don't you breathe the air
World's so crowded, you can't hardly move
Everybody telling you what to do
People relax, give each other room
Let me tell you what all the Cajuns like to do

Down in Louisiana, it don't matter
If you're sane as a judge, mad as a hatter
People down there, they don't ever stay blue
Cause they just ate or they're fixin' to
They party all night, it makes you feel right
The Big Easy knows that you just gotta let go

Skinny or fatter, natty or tattered
Down in Louisiana, it don't matter
Down in Louisiana, it don't matter

Let me tell you how it is in New Orleans
Life revolves around a lot of rice and beans
They like to share a laugh and tell you what they mean
They always have a smile on their face for everyone they meet
Live and let live is the way that they do
Have the neighbors over for some alligator stew
Crawfish etoufee, Rockin' Doopsie plays
Next thing you know all your troubles fly away

Chorus (x2)
