hey there lover, let's don't take the freeway
let's ride the river road to new Orleans
if you park up on the levee south of Plaquemines
I'll show you why you're glad you married me

moonlight on a mighty Mississippi
gulf-wind blowin' through the Cyprus trees
blanket by the river side
only you and me
baby, take it slow
down this Louisiana river road

oh my lover, you know I'm so sorry
I haven't kept that promise that I made
I owe you a kiss
for every midnight star above
right now let's mark a thousand outta the way

moonlight on a mighty Mississippi
gulf-wind blowin' through the Cyprus trees
blanket by the river side
only you and me
baby, take it slow
down this Louisiana river road

they said that life would wear love down
the same old things
day in and day out
but all these years we've loved so long
beside this river
flowing wide
running deep
running strong

moonlight on a mighty Mississippi
gulf-wind blowin' through the Cyprus trees
blanket by the river side
only you and me
baby, take it slow
going down this Louisiana river road
honey, take it slow
down this Louisiana river
down this Louisiana river
down this Louisiana river road
