Louisiana Rain

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Malcolm Welbourne (Papa Mali), Bill Kreutzmann

One of the new songs with Robert Hunter lyrics played by 7 Walkers featuring Bill Kreutzmann and Papa Mali.

Skipping from Ohio, I'm leaving on the fly
Headed for the Bayou, bye bye bye
Roll away from sorrow, roll away from pain
Make myself a home, among the 'gators and the rain
'Gators and the rain
'Gators and the rain
Amongst the alligators and Louisiana rain

Fly right out my window on alligator wings
Headed for the Bayou, saw those strings
Alligator E-I, alligator O
I'm going, going, gone, Where alligators go
'Gators and the rain
'Gators and the rain
Amongst the alligators and Louisiana rain

Underneath the thunder cloud, down along the storm
Anywhere I find, that's cozy, wet and warm
Could be Barataria, or Bayou Courtableau
The Red River valley, or lovely Lake Boudreaux
'Gators and the rain
'Gators and the rain
Amongst the alligators and Louisiana rain

Crazy as a bedbug, never said I was
Never said I wasn't, lazy, dry and snug
How to kick a ball high, how to kick it far
Squeeze a dram of cane rum, from a falling star
'Gators and the rain
'Gators and the rain
Amongst the alligators and Louisiana rain

Atchafalaya River, via Bogue Lusa Creek
Across Lake Ponchartrain to Whiskey Chitto Creek
Take the Chocktaw Bayou, Camarada Bay
Fighting alligators every step of the way
'Gators and the rain
'Gators and the rain
Amongst the alligators and Louisiana rain
Louisiana rain
Louisiana rain
Louisiana rain
