​I'm Gonna Move To Louisiana, Part 2

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

I'm going home to Louisiana sugar, New Orleans gonna be my home

I'm gonna lay my head, on some railroad tie
It's time to burrow, I'll be hard to find

I'm gonna move to Louisiana, I'm gonna move to Louisiana
I'm gonna move to Louisiana sugar, New Orleans gonna be my home

I'm gonna lay my head, on some railroad steel
Let the women in Lou-ville, know just how I feel

And I'll move to Louisiana, I'm gonna move to Louisiana
I'm gonna move to Louisiana sugar, New Orleans gonna be my home

I'm gonna saddle up my pony, hitch up my black mare
See if I can find my woman on the road somewhere

And I'll move to Louisiana, and I'll move to Louisiana
It won't lose to Louisiana sugar, New Orleans gonna be my home

I can take this pony and I can ball a jack
And I can do anything that my kids don't like

And I'll move to Louisiana, I'm gonna move to Louisiana
I'm gonna move to Louisiana sugar, New Orleans gonna be my home

There ain't but one thing reelin' my mind
That's that woman I left behind

I'm gonna move to Louisiana, I'm gonna move to Louisiana
I'm gonna move to Louisiana sugar, New Orleans gonna be my home

I'm gonna sing this song, I ain't gonna sing no more
It seems mighty funny, that the drinks are coming slow

I'm gonna sing this song, and I ain't gonna sing it long
If you ain't got no home brew beer, bring a bottle of corn

And I'll move to Louisiana, and I'll move to Louisiana
And I'll move to Louisiana sugar, New Orleans gonna be my home
