Well, it was out in California
By the San Diego Sea
That was when I was taken in
And it left its mark on me

Yeah, it nearly drove me crazy
'Cause I felt I had no choice
It seemed that I was only marking time
With all those sailor boys

Louisiana rain
Is falling at my feet
And I'm noticing a change
As I move down the street
Louisiana rain
Is soaking through my shoes
I may never be the same
When I reach Baton Rouge

South Carolina
Put out its arms for me
Right up until everything went black
Somewhere on a lonely street
And I still can't quite remember
Who helped me to my feet
Thank God for a long-neck bottle
The angel's remedy

Louisiana rain
Is falling just like tears
Running down my face
Washing out the years
Louisiana rain
Is soaking through my shoes
I may never be the same
When I reach Baton Rouge

Well, I never will get over
This English refugee
Singing to the Juke-Box
In some all-night beanery
Yeah, he was eating hard rock candy
And chasing it with tea
You sure should have seen him lick his lips
When he looked up at me

Louisiana rain
Is falling just like tears
Running down my face
Washing out the years
Louisiana rain
Is soaking through my shoes
I may never be the same
When I reach Baton Rouge

Louisiana rain
Is falling just like tears
Running down my face
Washing out the years
