Now, when I just was a little boy,standin to my Daddy's knee,my poppa said "Son, don't let the man get you and do what he done to me."
* I can remember the fourth of July, runnin' through the backwood bare And I can still
hear my old hound dog barkin',chasin' down a hoodoo there, chasin' down a hoodoo
** Born on the Bayou Born on the Bayou Born on the Bayou
Wish I was back on the Bayou,rollin' with some Cajun Queen Wishin' I where a fast freight train,just a chooglin' on down to New Orleans

All right Do do do do Mmmm Oh
