He had a reason to get back to Lake Charles 
He used to talk about it
He'd just go on and on
He always said Louisiana 
Was where he felt at home
He was born in Nacogdoches 
That's in East Texas 
Not far from the border 
But he liked to tell everybody 
He was from Lake Charles 
Did an angel whisper in your ear
And hold you close and take away your fear
In those long last moments 

We used to drive  Through Lafayette and Baton Rouge
In a yellow Camino
 Listening to Howling Wolf
He liked to stop in Lake Charles  Cause that's the place that he loved 
Did you run about as far as you could go
Down the Louisiana highway
 Across Lake Pontchartrain 
Now your soul is in Lake Charles 
No matter what they say
Did an angel whisper in your ear
And hold you close and take away your fear
In those long last moments 

He had a reason to get back to Lake Charles 
He used to talk about it
He'd just go on and on
He always said Louisiana 
Was where he felt at home
Did an angel whisper in your ear
And hold you close and take away your fear
In those long last moments 
Did an angel whisper in your ear
And hold you close and take away your fear
In those long last moments
