The bayou baby used to be a girl on her way
Until she found a bitter letter
Mama hid away
Now baby's gone astray
Chorus:
No more goodbyes or lessons in the rain
Tattered clothes and darkened eyes
Saddened by the pain she goes down
To the bridge outside of town
Verse:
The bayou baby slips into her color of youth
But this time it feels so different
'Cause she knows the truth
She stares at her vermouth
Bridge:
Will she find him here
Or will she find him there
Bourbon Street where the people meet
Or maybe Jackson Square
Can her daddy hear her
Is her daddy near her
She's looking on the East side
She's looking on the West side
Can her daddy hear her
Verse:
New Orleans knows all the secrets
To the beat of her heart
And she wants to know all the answers
Straight from the start
Y'all the baby's torn apart
Chorus:
No more goodbyes or lessons in the rain
Tattered clothes and darkened eyes
Saddened by the pain
She goes down
To the bridge outside of town
The bayou baby goes down
To the bridge outside of town
The bayou baby goes down
To the bridge outside of town
