La Louisianne

Need some musicality to go with the whisky and lyrics (and Ben delivers):

La Louisianne
You taste like rye whisky with a dash of absinthe
You talk like a couyon, never making no sense
You look like a muddy boot, tracking in dirt
Trying to leave you makes my heart hurt.

Acadiana’s got swamp gators, rice, oil, and fur
Big pots of gumbo and etouffe to stir
North of I-10, it’s all roughly the same
Pine trees and cotton fields, some sugar cane

Oh, girl,
You taste like rye whisky with a dash of absinthe
You talk like a couyon, never making no sense
You look like a muddy boot, tracking in dirt
Trying to leave you makes my heart hurt.

The mighty Mississippi, she slows her roll in BR
Huey built dat bridge low, so da barge don’t get far
Paddleboats cruise by Moon’s Riverwalk
If only the ghosts at Commander’s would talk

Oh, man,
You taste like rye whisky with a dash of absinthe
You talk like a couyon, never making no sense
You look like a muddy boot, tracking in dirt
Trying to leave you makes my heart hurt.

Oh, La Louisianne,
You taste like rye whisky with a dash of absinthe
You talk like a couyon, never making no sense
You look like a muddy boot, tracking in dirt
Leaving you makes my heart hurt.

Oh, oh, la Louisianne,
La, la, oh, Louisianne
Oui, oui, c’est ma Louisianne
You taste like rye whisky with a dash of absinthe
You talk like a couyon, never making no sense
You look like a muddy boot, tracking in dirt
Leaving you makes my heart hurt.
