  • There's a train that runs from here
    All the way to New Orleans
    And I ride it every night
    Every night in my dreams

    Louisiana, Louisiana
    Louisiana, ride you in my dreams

    There's a girl that lives down there
    With dark silky hair so fine
    And I hold her, oh so tight
    Every night in my mind

    Louisiana, Louisiana
    Louisiana, Hold you in my mind

    Mother Mary, Father of Grace
    Hear my plea and I'm down on my face
    Bring me home now, bring me home now
    Bring me home someday soon

    Scat...

    There's a band that plays down there
    At the end of Bourbon Street
    They've got a trumpet and a tambourine
    A piano man that can't be beat

    Louisiana, Louisiana
    Louisiana, Won't you wait for me

    Louisiana, Louisiana

    Scat...
