Lake Charles Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

He had a reason to get back to Lake Charles
He used to talk about it, he'd just go on and on
He always said Louisiana was where he felt at home

He was born in Nacogdoches
That's in East Texas not far from the border
But he liked to tell everybody he was from Lake Charles

Did an angel whisper in your ear
And hold you close and take away your fear
In those long last moments?

We used to drive through Lafayette and Baton Rouge
In a yellow Camino listening to howling wolf
He liked to stop in Lake Charles
'Cause that's the place he loved

Did you run about as far as you could go?
Down the Louisiana highway across Lake Ponchartrain
Now your soul is in Lake Charles no matter what they say

Did an angel whisper in your ear
And hold you close and take away your fear
In those long last moments?

He had a reason to get back to Lake Charles
He used to talk about it, he'd just go on and on
He always said Louisianan was where he felt at home

Did an angel whisper in your ear
And hold you close and take away your fear
In those long last moments?

Did an angel whisper in your ear
And hold you close and take away your fear
In those long last moments?
In those long last moments
