​I'm Gonna Move to Louisiana, Part 1

This song is by Jim Jackson and appears on the album Jim Jackson Vol. 2 (1928-1930) (1992).

I'm gon' move to Lou'siana, sugar, New Orleans gon' be my home

I went up North, and it sure was cold
My baby got mad with me, and now I got her told
I'm gon' move to Lou'siana, I'm gon' move to Lou'siana
I'm gon' move to Lou'siana, sugar, New Orleans gon' be my home

If my woman mistreat me, I ain't gon' dog her 'round
I'll get me another woman in the next town
I'm gon' move to Lou'siana, I'm gon' move to Lou'siana
I'm gon' move to Lou'siana, sugar, New Orleans gon' be my home

Whenever you see two women walkin' down the street, hand in hand
You can bet one is talkin' 'bout the other's man
Honey, you oughta move to Lou'siana, you oughta move to Lou'siana
I'm gon' move to Lou'siana, sugar, New Orleans gon' be my home

I met a girl in St. Louis, she lived in Birmingham town
And she told me that she loved me and she wouldn't throw me down
We gon' move to Lou'siana, we gon' move to Lou'siana
We gon' move to Lou'siana, sugar, New Orleans gon' be my home

I'm gonna tell all you men, right tonight
If you got a good woman, treat her right
I ain't drinkin' whiskey, or either drinkin' wine
But a good woman is hard to fine
I'm gon' move to Lou'siana, I'm gon' move to Lou'siana
I'm gon' move to Lou'siana, sugar, New Orleans gon' be my home
