Now Louisiana lady come down to Mississsippi won’t you shine shine shine
Deep water paddle wheel eatin’ up the river makin’ time time time
Sweet harmonica music sounds so fine fine fine
A carry me down to New Orleans I wanna see that woman of mine
It’s been so long I’m just about to lose my mind

Louisiana lady can’t you see me on a Bourbon Street bar seat sippin’ sweet wine wine wine
It sure beats bein’ back in Bama drinkin’ moonlit shine shine shine
I told the other woman sittin’ down beside me lookin’ fine fine fine
A carry me down to New Orleans I got to see that woman of mine
It’s been so long I’m just about to lose my mind

Summer time when the sun goes down and the boat comes rollin’ in
I see that woman walk my way and I come alive again

Louisiana lady come down to Mississsippi won’t you shine shine shine
Deep water paddle wheel eatin’ up the river makin’ time time time
Sweet harmonica music sounds so fine fine fine
A carry me down to New Orleans I got to see that woman again
Cause there’s a little bit of heaven waitin’ for me at the river’s end

Louisiana lady (Louisiana lady)
(Louisiana lady Louisiana lady) mercy
(Louisiana lady) oh I love it
(Louisiana lady) got to have it
(Louisiana lady)
