I think back to the time
When I first saw your face
You were walkin' across the delta
To your cold and lonely place

You know, I took you for a small girl
Really not quite seventeen
Oh, Lord, but I was wrong, oh, so wrong
You're like a woman I've never seen

Dark eyed Cajun woman
Where are you comin' from
Your soul is in the back woods
They say you never had a home

But I'm gonna know you better
If it takes all night and day
Dark eyed Cajun woman
You'll never get away, no, no

Now the evenin' breeze is blowin'
I hear your voice most everywhere
Your cold black eyes, they are dancin' in the starlight
Warmin' the cold night air

It's so beautiful, you know I have to say
Dark eyed Cajun woman
You'll never get away

Now the evenin' breeze is blowin'
I hear your voice most everywhere
Your cold black eyes, they are dancin' in the starlight
Warmin' the cold night air

It's so beautiful, you know I gotta say
Dark eyed Cajun woman
Well, you'll never get away
