Down in south Louisiana the moonlight grows on trees
It blows down in the autumn and it washes out to sea
It dances on the waves there like a distant memory
Dans la Louisiane

I had played my songs and packed my gear and still I felt all right
So I parked down by the water and I wandered through the night
Where the streetsigns all speak Friench beneath the shimmering streetlights
Dans la Louisiane

And the moon it shone so brightly I couldn't find a star
And the music flowed like sunshine from the fiddle and guitar
But the light that glowed within us was the warmest light by far
Je dois dire que je vous aime bien

So I'm writing down this simple song with nothing much to say
Except I'm thankful for the music and the privilege to play
But most of all I'm grateful just to get to spend this day
Dans la Louisiane

And the moon it shone so brightly I couldn't find a star
And the music flowed like sunshine from the fiddle and guitar
But the light that glowed within us was the warmest light by far
Je dois dire que je vous aime bien
Dans la Louisiane
Dans la Louisiane
