​Going Back To Louisiana

This song is by Delbert McClinton and appears on the album The Jealous Kind (1980).

Well it's three o'clock in the mornin' y'all
Oh, and I'm bidin' my time
Give me two more, Mr. Waiter
You know I got a whole lot on my mind
I'm going back to Louisiana
To that girl I left behind

I been to Memphis, baby, I been to Kansas City, too
Never met a woman who could love me like you do
Going back to Louisiana,
To that girl I left behind

Yeah, she's my kind of woman, y'all
She's just my size
She knocks me out the way she looks me in the eye
Going back to Louisiana,
To that girl I left behind

She used to live in Shreveport, but then she moved
Bet you ten to one she's gone to Baton Rouge
I'm gonna look her up, if you know what I mean
If I have to go as far as New Orleans

Been fine talking to ya honey, but,
You know that I
Got to find my baby, got to move on down the line
Back to Louisiana,
To that girl I left behind

She used to live in Shreveport, but then she moved
I bet you ten to one she's gone to Baton Rouge
I'm gonna look her up, if you know what I mean
If I have to go as far as New Orleans

Been fine talkin' to ya, honey, but
You know that I
Got to find my baby, and move on down the line
Going back to Louisiana,
To that girl I left behind
Oh, yeah, I'm going back to Louisiana
To that girl I left behind
