"Stars On The Water" as written by and Rodney J. Crowell....
Down in Louisiana bayous by and by
Perogue pole or your natural soul
Keeps you tied to a tree high tide
Beer joint lights come on
And then the crowd starts rollin' in

(Pretty soon you got) stars on the water
(Just like) stars on the water
You got stars on the water, let it rain

Beaumont to Biloxi
Sea breeze at your door
Gypsy rains, dang hurricanes
White silver sandy shores
The "Blue Light" lounge is shinin'
Way out on the view

(It looks just like) stars on the water
(Just like) stars on the water
Looks like stars on the water, let it rain

When it's midnight down in Mobile
Shinin' moonbeams on the bay
They come from miles around to dance the jukebox down
And dig the good time sounds they all play
And all across the harbour
Night lights shinin' in

(It looks just like) stars on the water
(Just like) stars on the water
(Feels like) stars on the water, let it rain

    General CommentThe song was written by Johnny Cashn's ex-son-in-law, Rodney Crowell. Jimmy says he wishes he wrote it, because it was a great song and describes the little Gulf honky-tonks perfectly.

    General CommentYeah, this is a Rodney Crowell song covered by Jimmy, and then much later by George Strait.
