Well, it was out in California by the San Diego sea
That was when I was taken in and it left its mark on me
Yeah, she nearly drove me crazy with all those china toys
And I know she really didn't mean a thing to those sailor boys

Louisiana rain is falling at my feet
Baby, I'm noticing the change as I move down the street
Louisiana rain is soaking through my shoes
I may never be the same when I reach Baton Rouge

South Carolina put out its arms for me
Right up until everything went black somewhere on lonely street
And it was just some mean old poison that I took up my nose
Thank God for a love that followed the angel's antidote

Louisiana rain is falling just like tears
Running down my face washing out the years
Louisiana rain is soaking through my shoes
I may never be the same when I reach Baton Rouge, oh yeah

Well, I never will get over this English refugee
Singing to the jukebox in some all night beanery
Yeah, he was eating pills like candy, chasing them with tea
You should have seen him lick his lips, that old black muddied beak

Louisiana rain is falling at my feet
Honey, I'm noticing a change as I move down the street
Louisiana rain is soaking through my shoes
I may never be the same when I reach Baton Rouge

Louisiana rain, yeah, it's falling just like tears
It's running down my face washing out the years
Louisiana rain is soaking through my shoes
I may never be the same when I reach Baton Rouge
No, I may never be the same when I reach Baton Rouge
