      About "Louisiana Man"

      Lyrics for Connie Smith - "Louisiana Man"

      At birth Mom and Papa called their little boy Ned
      They raised him on the banks of the river bed
      A houseboat tied to a big tall tree
      A home for my Papa and my Mama and me

      The clock strikes three, Papa jumps to his feet
      Already mama's cookin' Papa something to eat
      At half past, Papa, he's ready to go
      He jumps in his piro headed down the bayou

      He's got fishin' lines strung across the Louisiana river
      Gotta catch a big fish for us to eat
      He set the traps in the swamp catchin' anything he can
      Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man
      Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man

      A muskrat hides a hangin' by the dozen
      Even got a lady make a muskrat's cousin
      Got 'em out dryin' in the hot hot sun
      Tomorrow Papa's gonna turn 'em into mon

      They call my Mama Rita and my Daddy's Jack
      A little baby brother on the floor, that's Mac
      Big brother Ed's on the bayou fishin'
      Fram and Malene are the family twins

      On the river float Papa's great big boat
      That's for my Papa goes into town
      He takes every bit of the night and day
      To even reach the place where the people stay

      I can hardly wait until tomorrow comes around
      That's the day my Papa takes his fire to town
      Papa promised me that I could go even let me see a cowboy show

      I saw the cowboys and Indians for the first time
      Then I told my Papa gotta go again
      Papa said hon' we got the lines to run
      We'll come back tomorrow 'cause the work to be done

      He's got fishin' lines strung across the Louisiana river
      Gotta catch a big fish for us to eat
      He set the traps in the swamp catchin' anything he can
      Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man
      Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man

      Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man
      Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man
      Hey
