Doug Kershaw - Louisiana Man (Chords)

1961

At birth, Mom and Papa call their little boy Ned
Raised him on the banks of the riverbed
A houseboat is tied to a big, tall tree
A home for my Papa, and my Momma, and me

The clock strikes three, Papa jumps to his feet
Already, Mama's cookin' Papa somethin' to eat
At half-past, Papa, he's-a ready to go
He jumps in his pirogue headed down the bayou.

He's got fishin' lines strung across the Louisiana rivers
Try to catch a big fish for us to eat
He's settin' traps in the swamps catchin' anything he can
Try to make a livin', he's a Louisiana Man
Try to make a livin', he's a Louisiana Man.

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

Well, they call Mama Rita and my Daddy, Jack
Little baby brother on the floor, that's Mack
Brenda and-a Linda are the family twins
Big brother Ed's on the bayou fishin'

On the river floats Papa's great, big boat
That's how my Papa goes into town.
Takes every bit of a night and a day
To even reach a place where the people stay.

I can hardly wait until tomorrow comes around
That's the day my Papa takes the furs to town
Papa promised me that I could go
Even let me see a Cowboy show

I seen the Cowboys and Indians for the first time then
I told my Papa, "Gotta go again."
Papa said, "Son, we got lines to run.  We'll come back again.  First, there's work to be done."

He's got fishin' line strung across the Louisiana rivers 
Try to catch a big fish for us to eat
He's settin' traps in the swapms catchin' anything he can
Try to make a linin', he's a Louisiana Man.
Try to make a linin', he's a Louisiana Man.
Try to make a linin', he's a Louisiana Man. (fade)
