"Bayou Tortous" as written by and James Mcmurtry....
A Good idea 'til your will is due
Is go out to that place on the Tortous Bayou
Maybe get lucky, maybe get shot
Couldn't be half the trouble I got

Tortous Bayou, turn around
Tortous Bayou, turn around

It's just another night with the misses and me
Fittin' on the couch watching court T.V
Let me tell you something can turn it real
If you ever get thinking it's a done deal

Tortous Bayou, Turn around
Get your big feet up off the ground
Tortous Bayou, turn around
Well if that's a good time, now catch a ride to town

She comes from the land of the Bodark tree
Scott's Irish and Cherokee
She comes down here when the north blows
She don't care for the ice and snow

Tortous Bayou, Turn around
Get your big feet up off the ground
Tortous Bayou, turn around
Well if that's a good time, now catch a ride to town

Take my hand Oklahoma Jane
One little mess wouldn't hurt a thing
Now it's noon, I'm rolling up the drive
Now I don't even got a decent light

Letting everybody getting their way sometimes
I was looking at every woman that might
I was looking at their faces, looking at their parts
Looking through the whole in the bottom of my heart

Tortous Bayou, turn around
Well if that's a good time, now catch a ride to town

Tortous Bayou, turn around
Tortous Bayou, turn around
