Louisiana Bayoue
by Dave Matthews Band

No no mama cried devil they dosido
Two young boys lyin dead by the side of the road
The coins on their eyes represent the money they owe
No judge or jury ever gonna hear the story told

Down by the bayou
Tryin to play with the cane
Tryin to play with the cane
Same story again
Down by the bayou
Tryin to play with the cane
Tryin to play with the cane
Same story again
Louisiana bayou

Sweet girl daddy done beat that like he's insane
Brother can't watch him beat that girl down again
Late one night cooking up with a couple of friends
Swears his daddy's never gonna see another day

Down by the bayou
Tryin to play with the cane
Tryin to play with the cane
Same story again
Down by the bayou
Tryin to play with the cane
Tryin to play with the cane
Same story again

No no mama cried devil they dosido
See two young boys lyin dead by the side of the road
Shame shame
Shame shame

Money on the bed, but you ain't got to go
Sold your soul just tryin to get overload
No empty pocket gonna keep you from gettin your's
No judge or jury ever gonna hear the story told

Down by the bayou
Tryin to play with the cane
Tryin to play with the cane
Same story again
Down by the bayou
Tryin to play with the cane
Tryin to play with the cane
Same story again
No no mama cried devil they dosido
See two young boys lyin dead by the side of the road
Louisiana bayou
