“Crawfish, Oil, And Sunshine”

Honey, if you’re hungry
There’s a daily crawfish boil
And baby if you’re going broke
Just pick a spot and there’s bound to be oil
And sister if you want sunshine
Well this must be the brightest spot
But to me, crawfish, oil and sunshine
Is all Louisana’s got

(Chorus)
And being away from my home for so long
Has torn a hole in my soul
And if only I could touch you
I might be made whole again, and I know
That someone sent me here
For the work I was meant to do
But I would turn my back on the Southern Cross
If it meant comin’ home to you

I remember when I first met you
How I was only a shell of a man
And it wasn’t until you loved me
That I became who I truly am
And just like the Spanish moss
In these old Louisiana trees
I don’t look quite like myself
Without you hangin’ all over me

(Chorus)

Honey, if home will have me
I’m soon to be on my way
And soon as I finish my oil field business
I’ll collect the rest of my pay
And soon as I steal my one more Cajun meal
I’ll be aimin’ at Ohio
Where there’s a little less sun but a lot more fun
So long, down the road I go

(Chorus)
