Kyle Park – Louisiana Boy lyrics

Well I called in sick, I had to get away
I was going crazy out here in L. A.
I needed to go where the crawfish flow like wine
I packed my things and headed down the road
Took a litle more than a weekly load
I'm going to Louisiana for a long, long time

One more day and I'll be there by dawn
I can't wait to see that state
'Cause partner that's where I'm from

I'm a Louisiana boy grown up on the Quarter
I'm used to the people and I even drink the water
Been shuckin' them oysters since I was just a kid
Trapping alligators like my granddad did
I moved to the city where the girls looked pretty
But now I'm back to stay
I'm a Louisiana boy with a pocket full of money
And a love for the Delta Bay

Well it used to be where everybody knew me
I was drinking liquor when I was thirteen
They called me the Cajun Kid everywhere I'd go
But when I moved away I left it all behind
With my overalls and a gator-skin tie
I swore that I'd never come back to the life I know

But the city life is just too different for me
I could live there again, but I'd just come home
To keep on living downstream
