Louisiana Man Lyrics

Louisiana Man (Stereo) (1999 Digital Remaster) - The Seekers

Oh yeh Cajun man do all he can

Gotta make a living he's a Louisiana man

 

At birth mama and papa called their little boy Ned

Raised him on the banks of the river bed

A houseboat tied to a big tall tree

A home for my mama and my papa and me

The clock strikes three papa jumps to his feet

Already mama's cooking papa something to eat

At half-past papa he's already to go

 

He jumps in his bureau headed down the bayou

He's got a fishing line strung across a Louisiana river

Gotta catch a big fish for us to eat

He sets his traps in the swamps catches anything he can

Gotta make a living he's a Louisiana man

 

Gotta make a living he's a Louisiana man

Oh yeh Cajun man do all he can

Gotta make a living he's a Louisiana man

 

They call mama Rita and my daddy Jack

The little baby brother on the floor is Mack

Bryn and Lynn are the family twins

Big brother Ed's on the bayou fishing

 

On the river float papa's great big boat

That's how my papa goes into town

Takes every bit of the night and day

To even reach a place where the people stay

He's got a fishing line strung across a Louisiana river

Gotta catch a big fish for us to eat

He sets his traps in the swamps catches anything he can

Gotta make a living he's a Louisiana man

Gotta make a living he's a Louisiana man

 

I can hardly wait till tomorrow comes around

That's the day my papa takes his furs to town

Papa said "Son we got lines to run

We come back again 'cause there's work to be done"

He's got a fishing line strung across a Louisiana river

Gotta catch a big fish for us to eat

He sets his traps in the swamps catches anything he can

Gotta make a living he's a Louisiana man

Gotta make a living he's a Louisiana man

Oh yeh Cajun man do all he can

Gotta make a living he's a Louisiana man

Gotta make a living he's a Louisiana man
