Louisiana Boy 
By Lisa Dudley & Harry Moore

Louisiana boy on his way home
Hasn’t been there in years
He always knew he was bound back
By the sound of the whippoorwill calling him near
Well it’s hot down there but its good clean air
And the boll weevil’s sitting on the square
There’s no other place as dear to his heart
And the Bayou is better than anywhere

Now his heart still yearns for Louisiana
Where he learned to be forthright and strong
He can’t wait to see his true love’s face
Louisiana boy’s going home

Louisiana boy on his way home
To magnolia’s shining in the rain
Pecan’s in the trees watermelons on the vine
And the sweet taste of sugar cane
He’ll go fishing and slow down his pace
Feasting on catfish and greens
Eula Mae will bake him a blackberry pie
He’s been hankering for cornbread and beans

Now his heart still yearns for Louisiana
Where he learned to be forthright and strong
He can’t wait to see his true love’s face
Louisiana boy’s going home

He can’t wait to see his true love’s face
Louisiana boy’s going home
