lyrics

"Louisiana Days,
Louisiana Nights"

Louisiana days, Louisiana nights
Rivers of dreams under ever-changing light

Sky of huge billows and blue
Catches sudden, cool breeze
Turns dark as Goya's Giant steps,
And brows of Hoodoos,
Cracks like Alligator's
Tail on doors of dungeons
Thunder and lightning shoot to the plain
Lightning and rain shoot to the plan
And the porch-sitters' opera
Plays on again,
Another morning to dawn
And the porch-sitters' opera
Plays on again,
Another morning to dawn

Louisiana days, Louisiana nights
Rivers of dreams under ever-changing light

And the beats in this place,
Never let up--they never stop
You heard me--Yeah, you're right--
Yeah, you're right--You heard me--
The beats that put Funk in Hip-Hop
Skips in two-step, swings in Swamp Pop
Leading left to right, right to left
The beats in branches
And in stones that haunt
Never let up--they never stop
You heard me--Yeah, you're right

Louisiana days, Louisiana nights
Rivers of dreams under ever-changing light

Freedom here be like nowhere else
Yeah, you're right--You heard me
You heard me--Yeah you're right
Freedom here be like nowhere else
Freedom here be like nowhere else

Louisiana days, Louisiana nights
Rivers of dreams under ever-changing light.
Freedom here be like nowhere else ...
Louisiana days, Louisiana nights,
Freedom here be like nowhere else ...
Louisiana days, Louisiana nights ...
