Going Back to Louisiana
by Delbert McClinton



Well it's three o'clock in the morning' ya'll
Oh, and I'm biding my time
Give me two more Mr. Waiter
You know I got a whole lot on my mind
Going back to Louisiana,
To that girl left behind

I been to Memphis baby, I been to Kansas City too
Never met a woman who could love me like you do
Going back to Louisiana,
To that girl I left behind

Yeah, she's my kind of woman ya'll
She's just my size
Knocks me out the way she looks me in the eyes
Going back to Louisiana,
To that girl I left behind

She used to live in Shreveport,
But then she moved
Bet you ten to one she's going to Baton Rouge
I'm gonna look her up, if you know what I mean
If I have to go as far as New Orleans

Been fine talking to ya honey but,
You know that I
Got to find my baby, got to move on down the line
Going back to Louisiana,
To that girl I left behind

She used to live in Shreveport,
But then she moved
Bet you ten to one she's going to Baton Rouge
I'm gonna look her up, if you know what I mean
If I have to go as far as New Orleans

Been fine talking to ya honey but,
You know that I
Got to find my baby, got to move on down the line
Going back to Louisiana,
To that girl I left behind
Oh, yeah, I'm going back to Louisiana
To that girl I left behind
