1. My Louisiane

From the recording 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!
