This is a song about a girl from the bayou down in Louisiana country
The story simply says
She left home at sixteen said she was gonna be a movie queen
Said her hometown was just too small and she had roaches and rats wall to wall
So without a bag of beans she made a change of scenes
Hitched a ride up to New Orleans
With just the clothes on her back and a little brown sack
Said hello to the city where she would learn to act
Gonna be a movie queen gonna be on the big wide screen
Fancy clothes and diamond rings have all the better things

She took a part time job at the Burger King
Went to school at night oh she was doin' her things
Then she started hangin' out with the evening crowd
Gettin' high acclaim before she knew it she was all strung out
She still had that dream of bein' a movie queen
So she decided she'd have to leave New Orleans
Hollywood bound but with her feet on the ground
When she got to the city she took a look around
Said gonna be a movie queen...

Oh but things didn't work out that way they found her dead in her room today
But in my mind I can hear her say I can still hear her say
Gonna be a movie queen...
