"Louisiana Lady" lyrics

Louisiana Lady

Now Louisiana lady
Come down to Mississsippi
Won't you shine, shine, shine?
Deep water paddle wheel
Eating up the river
Making time, time, time
Sweet harmonica music
Sounds so fine, fine, fine
A carry me down
To New Orleans
I wanna see that woman of mine
It's been so long
I'm just about to lose my mind

Louisiana lady
Can't you see me on a Bourbon Street bar seat
Sipping sweet wine, wine, wine?
It sure beats being back in Bama
Drinking moonlit
Shine, shine, shine
I told the other woman sitting down beside me
Looking fine, fine, fine
A carry me down
To New Orleans
I got to see that woman of mine
It's been so long
I'm just about to lose my mind

Summer time when the sun goes down
And the boat comes rolling in
I see that woman
Walk my way
And I come alive again

Louisiana lady
Come down to Mississsippi
Won't you shine, shine, shine?
Deep water paddle wheel
Eating up the river
Making time, time, time
Sweet harmonica music
Sounds so fine, fine, fine
A carry me down
To New Orleans
I got to see that woman again
Cause there's a little bit of heaven
Waiting for me at the river's end

Louisiana lady
Louisiana lady
Louisiana lady
Louisiana lady
Mercy

Ooh, Louisiana lady
Oh, I love it
Ooh, Louisiana lady
Got to have it
Ooh, Louisiana lady
