"Sweet Louisiana" as written by and Charlie Daniels....
Well I thought I?d go out to Tulsa
And ride in a rodeo
Red beans and rice sure would be nice
Back where the Mississippi River flows

[Chorus]
And it's a long way back to Vicksburg
Mississippi River is muddy and wide
But it don't seem like much
When sweet Louisiana's waitin' on the other side

Well there's a lot of room up in Canada
Where a man catch his breath
But the men are bold and the women are cold
And you damn near freeze to death

[Chorus]

There's pretty girls in Kansas City
And a man can have a ball
But the women in Ouachita Parish
Drive a young man up the wall

[Chorus]

Well I thought I?d go out to Tulsa
And ride in a rodeo
Red beans and rice sure would be nice
Back where the Mississippi River flows

[Chorus]

'Cause it don't seem like much
When sweet Louisiana's waitin' on the other side
