Hit it, Hal
Early in the mornin', she hitched a ride down to Louisville
Dressed herself like a Cajun Queen in New Orleans, baby


And me, you know, I don't hardly mind
Sippin' on a beer in Bourbon Street and I'm sittin' easy

So I said, "I like your dress"
She crossed her legs and looked at me funny
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin'
Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin'

{Bass: Joe Osborn}
Early in the mornin', she hitched a ride down to Louisville (Louisville)
Dressed herself like a Cajun Queen in New Orleans, baby

And me, you know, I don't hardly mind
Sippin' on a beer in Bourbon Street and I'm sittin' easy


Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin'
Have a seat, take a load off your feet, and she said "Yes"
Swamps all around make ya feel kinda funny, don't they, honey

Down on the bayou, why, you never know just what you're doin'
