It was a dream I had a long time ago
Louisiana rain comes falling down
It was a song I sang a long time ago
It was the girl I tried to sing it with
And the colors that she wore to bed

Momma told her not to go
Daddy threw the radio
Didn't think you'd really care
Atchafalaya love affair
Louisiana

He was a bayou boy, he wore the corduroy
It was safe to say he lived his life in chains
He was the great white hurting
She was a bible girl, wasn't known to whirl
She was all she ever thought that she could be
Maybe just a little bit more tonight for me

Momma told her not to go
Daddy threw the radio
Didn't think you'd really care
Atchafalaya love affair
Louisiana...went a little like this

It was a dream I had a long time ago
Louisiana, Roosevelt, and me
Walking backwards in the rain
It was a song I sang a long time ago
It was the girl I tried to sing it with
And the colors that she wore to bed

Momma told her not to go
Daddy threw the radio
Didn't think you'd really care
Atchafalaya love affair
Louisiana love
Atchafalaya along with me
Louisiana love...
It went a little like this
