"Louisiana" as written by and Randy Newman....
What's happened
Down here
Is the wind's
Have changed
Clouds rolled
In from the north
And it started to rain
It rained real hard
And it rained
For a real long time
Six feet of water
In the streets
Of Evangeline
The river rose all day
The river rose all night
Some people
Got lost in the flood
Some people
Got away all right
The river had busted
Through clear
Down to Plaque-mines
Six feet of water
In the streets
Of Evangeline

Louisiana, Louisiana

They're tyrin'
To wash us away
They're tryin'
To wash us away

Louisiana, Louisiana


President came down
In his big airplane
With his little fat man
With a notepad
In his hand
President say
Little fat man
Isn't it a shame?
What the river has done
To this poor
Farmer's land

Louisiana, Louisiana


Louisiana, Louisiana

[Chorus: x2]

    General Commentgreat cover by Willie!
    I especially like the new text, reference to hurricane Catrina, and the scum (vice)president who only made things worse instead of helping!
