From a town in Louisiana on the wrong side of the tracks,
He was harder than a hickory long and thinner than a rail,
He turned 18 in the Parish courthouse facin 10 to life,
He said judge I mean your honor I hope you'll understand,
cause you don't get up in my face, you don't call my mama names,
I don't mean no disrespect but I been stubborn, all my life
He'd been two years in prison when his cousin Jay came down,
He broke out of jail that night and left a note behind,
He found her in a tavern up in westside Buffalo,
Said I'm lookin for the man who done my little sister harm,
and some pimp back in the corner, started makin himself small,
He said you try to run away, you gone regret it, all your life,
The Cajun started laughin when the pimp pulled out a knife,
With one sledgehammer fist he knocked him sprawlin on the floor,
He walked on down the sidewalk and hit the Southern trail,
He said I had some business up above the bunkie line,
and I hope I didnt cause no trouble, I wasnt tryin to run away,
Besides I'm kind of proud I been a coonass, all my life
