No, no, mamma now dealer don't docey-doe
Two young boys lyin' dead by the side of the road
The coins on their eyes represent the money they owe
No judge or jury ever gonna hear their story told

Down by the bayou
Tryin to play with the cain-you
Tryin to play with the cain-you
Same old story again-you
Louisiana Bayou
Down by the bayou
Tryin to play with the cain-you
Tryin to play with the cain-you
Same old story again-you
Louisiana Bayou

Sweet girl daddy done beat that girl like he's insane
Brother can't watch him beat that girl down again
'Till late one night cookin up with a couple of friends
Swear his daddy never gonna see another day

Down by the bayou
Tryin to play with the cain-you
Tryin to play with the cain-you
Same old story again-you
Down by the bayou
Tryin to play with the cain-you
Tryin to play with the cain-you
Same old story again-you

No, no, mamma GOD and Devil don't docey-doe
Two young boys lyin' dead by the side of the road
Shame, shame
IT'S A SHAME TO LOSE YOUR WAY RUNNNG WILD
SHAME, SHAME
It's a shame to lose your way as a child
IT'S A SHAME TO LOSE YOUR..

Money on the bed but you aint got to go
Sold your soul just tryin to get overload
No EMPTY pocket gonna keep ya from gettin yours
No judge or jury ever gonna hear their story told

Down by the bayou
Tryin to play with the cain-you
Tryin to play with the cain-you
Same old story again-you
Down by the bayou
Tryin to play with the cain-you
Tryin to play with the cain-you
Same old story again-you

No, no, mamma tried doin the docey-doe
Two young boys lyin' dead by the side of the road
Down by the bayou
Tryin to play with the cain-you
Tryin to play with the cain-you
Same old story again-you

It's a shame

(Dave talking in bayou)
