No no, momma now devil don't do-si-do
Two young boys lyin' dead by the side of the road
And the coins in their eyes represent the money they owe
No judge or jury ever gonna hear the story told

Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Say my story again-you

(Louisiana)
Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Say my 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
So late one night cookin' up with a couple of friends
Swears his daddy never gonna see another day

Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Say my story again-you

(Louisiana)
Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Say my story again-you

Louisiana bayou

No no, momma, God an' devil done do-si-do
See two young boys lyin' dead by the side of the road
Shame shame

Oh it's a shame to lose your way running wild
It's a shame to lose your light shine
(Shame shame)
And it's a shame to lose your way as a child
Oh it's a shame to lose your

Money on the bed but you ain't got to go
Sold your soul just trying to get over low
No empty pocket gonna keep you from getting yours
No judge or jury ever gonna hear the story told

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

(Louisiana)
Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Same old story again-you

Louisiana bayou

No no, momma, the devil done do-si-do
Two young boys lyin' dead by the side of the road

(Louisiana bayou)
Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Same old story again-you

(Louisiana bayou)
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Same old story again-you

(Louisiana bayou)
Same old story again-you
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Same old story again-you

(Louisiana bayou)
Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Same old story again-you

(Louisiana bayou)
Down by the bayou
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
(Oh it's a shame to lose your way running wild)
Tryin' to play with the caine-you
Same old story again-you
(Oh it's a shame to lose your light shine)
