From the recording Fortunes: the Best of Mark Brine
Written by: MARK BRINE
The crescent moon is shining down on Lou’siana Reflectin' off 'a the bayou water The music's playing down in the French Quarter 'n evenin' it just keeps growing hotter
Chorus: Ay … eee … Lou’siana Ay … eeeeee … eeeeee
Rose perfume drifts through the romantic evenin’with the smell of the crayfish boilin' 'n steaming The Cajuns are dancing and they have me believin' that once you are here, there is no chance of leavin'
The guitars are strumming, accordions playin' The hour is late but there's still celebration In the cool moonlit night, the lovers are swayin' While young ones in barefeet about them are playin'©2003 Black Pottery Music (BMI)
