I think back to the time
When I first saw your face
You were walkin' across the delta 
To your cold and lonely place
You know, I took you for a small girl
 Really not quite seventeen
Oh, Lord, but I was wrong, oh so wrong 
You're like a woman I've never seen

Dark eyed Cajun woman
 Where are you comin' from
Your soul is in the back woods 
They say you never had a home
But I'm gonna know you better 
If it takes all night and day
Dark eyed Cajun woman
You'll never get away, no, no

Now the evenin' breeze is blowin'
I hear your voice most everywhere 
Your cold, black eyes
They are dancin' in the starlight 
Warmin' the cold night air
It's so beautiful, you know I have to say
Dark eyed Cajun woman
You'll never get away
