Louisiana Bayou
Dave Matthews Band Lyrics


No, no, mama, now devil done do-si-do
Two young boys lyindead 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
Trying to play with the caine
Trying to play with the caine
Same old story again
(Louisiana bayou) down by the bayou
Trying to play with the caine
Trying to play with the caine
Same old story again
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
Trying to play with the caine
Trying to play with the caine
Same old story again
(Louisiana bayou) down by the bayou
Trying to play with the caine
Trying to play with the caine
Same old story again
(Louisiana bayou) bring down a saint

No, no, mama, the devil done do-si-do
See two young boys lying dead by side of the road
Shame shame

Oh its a shame to lose your way running wild
Oh it's a shame to lose the light that shines (shame shame)
Oh 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 tryin to get over low
No empty pocket gonna keep you from gettin yours
No judge or jury ever gonna hear the story told

Down by the bayou
Trying to play with the caine
Trying to play with the caine
Same old story again
(Louisiana bayou) down by the bayou
Trying to play with the caine
Trying to play with the caine
Same old story again
(Louisiana bayou)

No, no, mama, trying devil done do-si-do
Two young boys lying dead by the side of the road

(Louisiana bayou) down by the bayou
Trying to play with the caine
Trying to get with the pain
See there's nowhere to go

Louisiana bayou
Trying to play with the caine
Trying to play with the caine
Troubles do it again

Same old sold story again (Louisiana bayou)
Trying to play with the caine
Trying to play with the caine
Same old story again

(Louisiana bayou) down by the bayou
Trying to play with the caine
Trying to play with the caine
Same old story again

(Louisiana bayou) down by the bayou
Trying to play with the aine

Oh it's a shame to lose your way running wild (same old story again)
Oh it's a shame to lose the light that shines
Oh it's a shame to lose your way as a child
Oh (same old story again) it's a shame to lose your?

Down by the bayou
Louisiana bayou?
Louisiana bayou?

Sometimes, when the suicidal thoughts come, this video brings me back off the edge of the cliff. Thanks DMB and Robert Randolph.

ya they pretty much crushed it on that one. Crazy how after all the years they've been in the game they still go out night after night and put their heart and soul into it.
