It's been raining all day I can't go home
The truck is stuck and the motor's blown
Catfish cookin' at the Pine Tree Lodge
Drink a little whiskey down at the bar
Drink a little whiskey down at the bar

There's barefoot John with two left shoes
He's got a Pabst Blue Ribbon and the gumbo blues
He said the oils still pumping and the money's strong
But he gave it to a woman now she's gone
Gave it to a woman now she's gone.

I want to go home but I can't complain
Living the life in a coonass dream
The water's rising but it's running slow
Down on the bayou

I'm going to put my troubles in a frying pan
With a Speckle belly goose and a Mallard hen
I'm going to eat my fill and drink mine too
Then gypsy dance with the Cajun moon
Gypsy dance with the Cajun moon

So let me sing you a song, sing a melody
Do the alligator stomp on top the levee
The phones are down, I ain't heard no news
They all washed away with the Gulf Coast blues
Washed away with the Gulf Coast blues

I want to go home but I can't complain
Living the life in a coonass dream
The water's rising but it's running slow
Down on the bayou
