I Got A Hole In My Pirogue

This song is by Johnny Horton and appears on the album Honky-Tonk Man (1961) and on the Compilation American Originals (1989).

Well, I went out a fishin' to make a little mon
To take to Cajulina so we could have some fun
On the way back, I knocked a hole in my bow
I got a hole in my pirogue, I can't go see my gal

The purtiest sight that you ever have seen
Is a moonlight night down in New Orleans
I'm up the river, just around the bend
I got a hole in my pirogue, I just can't hold it in

Well, Catelina's waitin' with tears in her eyes
Munchin' and a crunchin' on a crawfish pie
I smell a feeling floatin' through the air
I got a hole in my pirogue, I can't go see my Cher

The purtiest sight that you ever have seen
Is a moonlight night down in New Orleans
I'm up the river on around the bend
I got a hole in my pirogue, I just can't hold it in

Yeah I'm here on the bayou, sittin' all alone
With a busted bottom and I can't pole it home
Cajulina's waitin' lonesome as can be
I got a hole in my pirogue, I can't go see my she

The purtiest sight that you ever have seen
Is a moonlight night down in New Orleans
I'm up the river on around the bend
I got a hole in my pirogue, I just can't hold it in
