Lyrics

MY LOUISIANE

by WD Picou

 

Maw-Maw was pretty when She was young

She ran through the Prairie neath the Golden Sun

She rested in the shade of the big Oak Tree

I loved those stories Maw-Maw told to me

 

I’d close my eyes and go slipping back

to a Paradise outside a shingle shack

Where Maw-Maw did dance footloose and fancy-free

Somewhere in the Country out around a big Oak Tree

 

My Louisiane!

My Louisiane!

 

Maw-Maw sometimes She'd look so far away

back to a time when She was young at play

She held this little baby mesmerized

as I drifted off to Dream about a place called Paradise

 

I look out the window

man, I love the Rain

I look out the window

but I know it's not the same

as the picture that was painted

as I sat on Maw-Maw's knee

as I look at the place

where there used to be a big Oak Tree

 

My Louisiane!

My Louisiane!
