​Louisiana Bayou

This song is by Dave Matthews Band and appears…


No, no, mamma now devil done do-si-do
See two young boys lyin' dead by the side of the road
The coins in their eyes represent the money they owed
No judge or jury ever gonna hear their story told

Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again
Down by the bayou (Louisiana Bayou)
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again
Louisiana Bayou

Sweet girl daddy done beat that girl like he's insane
Brother can't watch him beat that girl down again
Till late one night cooking up with a couple of friends
Swears his daddy never gonna see another day

Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again
Down by the bayou (Louisiana Bayou)
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again
Louisiana Bayou

No, no, mamma now devil done do-si-do
Two young boys lyin' dead by the side of the road
Shame, shame
Oh, it's a shame to lose your way running wild
It's a shame to lose the light that shines (shame, shame)
It's a shame to lose your way as a child
It's a shame to lose your ...

Money on the bed, but you ain't got to go
Sold your soul just tryin' to get overload
No empty pocket gonna keep you from gettin' yours
No judge or jury ever gonna hear their story told

Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again
Down by the bayou (Louisiana Bayou)
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again
Louisiana Bayou

No, no, mamma now devil done do-si-do
Them, them two young boys lyin' dead by the side of the road

Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again
Louisiana Bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again
Louisiana Bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again
Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Tryin' to play with the 'caine
Same old story again
Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the 'caine

Oh, it's a shame to lose your way running wild
It's a shame to lose the light that shines on you
It's a shame to lose your way as a child
It's a shame to lose your ...

Down by the bayou
Louisiana Bayou
