Louisiana Lady

Lyrics: John Dawson
Music: John Dawson

I been on this road for seven days
And I'm so beat my vision�s just a yellow haze
But I know that I am gonna make it home tonight
And then I'm gonna see my light

Yeah, tonight I'll see my Louisiana lady
My Louisiana lady's gonna
Sleep with me tonight, and hold me tight
Louisiana lady know that I need you
Louisiana lady I love you
Louisiana lady I love you

Six more hours till I make New Orleans
I been doing too much speed I'm feeling down right mean
And I think that I can cut an hour off the time
If I keep lady on my mind


Every man has got to earn his pay
But I feel so bad each time I have to go away
But when I get home tonight it's gonna be worthwhile
I�m gonna see my lady smile
