Louisiana Blues - Lyrics by Ufo


--- i'm going to louisiana baby behind the stars
I'm going to louisiana baby behind the stars
And though i just found out my troubles just begun

I'm going to n'orleans get me a hold of your hand
I'm going new orleans get me a hold your hand
I'm gong to take you with me, right under my command

If the river was whiskey i would [drink all it up????]
If the river was whiskey i would [drink all it up???]
And though i'd swim to the bottom , drink myself back up, all right


(repeat verses 1 and 3)
