Baton Rouge Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, I'm gonna leave Texarkana
I'm goin' down to Louisiana
I'm gonna try my luck in Baton Rouge
I'm gonna follow ol' Red River down
'Til I see the lights of town
And I ain't gonna get no sleep in Baton Rouge

Sayin', Baton Rouge, Baton Rouge
I'm gonna get me some alligator shoes
Baton Rouge, Baton Rouge
I'm gonna wear 'em out in Baton Rouge

It was a Texas girl that broke my heart
Then she tore my truck apart
Hey, I guess I'll get me another in Baton Rouge
I like crawfish, I like rice
An' I like girls that treat you nice
Hey, I'm gonna find me one in Baton Rouge

I said, Baton Rouge, Baton Rouge
I'm gonna get me some alligator shoes
Baton Rouge, Baton Rouge
I'm gonna wear 'em out in Baton Rouge

Hey, I'm gonna learn to walk that walk
I'm gonna learn to talk that talk
I'm gonna learn to dance in Baton Rouge
Ain't life just like a Cul de Sac?
I'm a Texas boy an' I'm goin' back
Soon as I catch my breath in Baton Rouge

Sayin', Baton Rouge, Baton Rouge
I'm gonna get me some alligator shoes
Baton Rouge, Baton Rouge
I'm gonna wear 'em out in Baton Rouge
Hey, I'm gonna strut my stuff in Baton Rouge
Hey, I'm gonna cool my heels in Baton Rouge
