South To Louisiana Lyrics ID: 1838

Joe Boudreaux left Breaux Bridge in the spring of '44
With Jean-Pierre, his partner, and his cousin Robichaux
They crossed the Atchafalaya as they paddled their pirogue
Through the swamps and the bayous to the town of Thibodaux

They paddled through the marshlands and the swamps of Louisiane
With the handles of the hand-made oars making blisters in their hand
But they had to get to Thibodaux so they went on through the swamps
'Cause tonight they were taking their Cajun girls to a crawfish sauce piquante

Where the bayous are windin', the crawfish they're findin'
South to Louisiana to the town of Thibodaux
Where the bayous are flowing, big crawfish keep a-growin'
South to Louisiana to the town of Thibodaux

Then Joe fell in love with a girl they call Maureen
She came down from Opelousas to be crowned the Crawfish Queen
They danced and sang in Abbeville, did the same in Jeanerette
Got married in the springtime, settled down in Lafayette

Then Joe turned to Pierre with a crawfish in his hand
Said "Pierre, you're a-lookin' at a mighty hungry man"
"I'll take the crawfish by the neck and tear his tail like this"
"Then pass him on to little Maureen, let her make a crawfish bisque"

Where the bayous are windin', the crawfish they're findin'
South to Louisiana to the town of Thibodaux
Where the bayous are flowing, big crawfish keep a-growin'
South to Louisiana to the town of Thibodaux

Lyrics by Dago Redlich, Clifford "Pee Wee" Trahan, and Sam.
Recorded by Johnnie Allan.
