Pat Green – Louisiana Song lyrics

By Pat Green
2000 Greenhorse Music/Bmi. All Rights Reserved

I took me a river boat from Memphis and I rode to New Orleans. Met up with a little cayenne mamma. She said she'd like to be
My Delta queen, She said there's one thing I forgot to tell you, Yeah there's one thing you should know. She said my mamma
Was a voodoo princess and my heart beats black like coal, Well she made up some black magic gumbo and some voodoo etoufe'
She said once you taste my cookin boy It's gonna steal your heart away, She said there's one more thing I forgot to tell you
Yeah there's one thing that you should know, She said once you taste my baby's cookin', It's gonna turn your heart black like
Coal. Now she took me on a little walk down the bayou, On a lovers rendevous. She said take my hand little cajun man gonna do
The thing lovers do, now there's one thing I forgot to tell you, yeah there's one thing you should know, she said ohh-oooh-oooh-
Oh ohhh mmmm-mmmm-mm-mm-mmmm, Now this ain't hardly no story, Yeah it's barely even worth the tell, But you ramble around
In a delta town, You're sure to lose yourself, And there's one thing I forgot to tell you, yeah there's one thing I forgot to tell
You. I said now don't you go messin' with no voodoo mamma, She take you straight to hell.
