LYRICS

South to Louisiana
Johnnie Allan
Added by : FrancisMorin

South to Louisiana to the town of Thibodeaux
South to Louisiana to the town of Thibodeaux
Joe Boudreaux left Breaux Bridge, in the spring of forty-four
With Jean-Pierre his partner and his cousin Robicheaux
They crossed the Atchafalaya as they paddled their pirogue
Through the swamps and the bayous to the town of Thibodeaux.

They paddled through the marshlands and the swamps of Louisiane
With the handles of the hand-made oars making blisters in their hands
But they had to get to Thibodeaux so they went on through the swamps
‘Cause tonight they were taking their Cajun girls to a crawfish sauce piquant

The bayous are flowin’
The crawfish keep a growin’
South to Louisiana to the town of Thibodeaux
South to Louisiana to the town of Thibodeaux

Then Joe fell in love with a girl they call Maureen
She came down from Opelousas to be crowned the Crawfish Queen
They danced and sang at Abbeville and did the same Jeanneret
Got married in the springtime and settled down in Lafayette

Then Joe turned to Pierre with a crawfish in his hand
He said, “Pierre, you’re lookin’ at mighty hungry man
I’ll take the crawfish by the neck and tear his tail like this
Then pass him on to little Maureen
Let her make a crawfish bisque”

Where the bayous are winding
The crawfish, they’re finding
South to Louisiana to the town of Thibodeaux
South to Louisiana to the town of Thibodeaux
