“Lake Charles”

Videos by American Songwriter


“We used to drive through Lafayette and Baton Rouge
In a yellow Camino, listening to Howling Wolf
He liked to stop in Lake Charles, cause that’s the place that he loved.

Did you run about as far as you could go?
Down the Louisiana highway, across Lake Pontchartrain
Now your soul is in Lake Charles, no matter what they say.

Did an angel whisper in your ear,
And hold you close and take away your fear,
In those long last moments.”

– Lucinda Williams

From the album Car Wheels On A Gravel Road
