I been balling a shiny black steel jack-hammer,
Been chippin' up rocks for the great highway,
Live five years if I take my time,
Ballin' that jack and a drinkin' my wine.

While my rider hide my bottle in the other room.
Doctor say better stop ballin' that jack,
If I live five years I gonna bust my back, yes I will.

Easy wind cross the Bayou today
Cause there's a whole lotta women, mama,
Out in red on the streets today.
And the rivers keep a talkin',
But you never heard a word it said.

Gotta find a woman be good to me,
Won't hide my liquor try to serve me tea,
Cause I'm a stone jack baller and my heart is true
And I'll give everything that I got to you, yes I will.

Easy wind going cross the Bayou today
There's a whole lotta women
Out in red on the streets today.
And the rivers keep a talkin',
But you never heard a word it said.
