INTRO SOLO

I'm goin' to Lou'siana, peoples, and it won't be long
I'm goin' to Lou'siana, peoples, and it won't be long
I'm gon' make Lou'siana peoples, be my native home

My babe's in Lou'siana, they tell me it's a paupers' home
My babe's in Lou'siana, they tell me it's a paupers' home
I don't care if it's in graveyards, I'm goin' down there 'fore long

Lou'siana Special is a fast train, water and coal on the fly
Lou'siana Special is a fast train, water and coal on the fly
Your woman ever ride that train, won't you tell her, "Bye, bye, bye."

SOLO (Spoken by Milton during solo: That's it, boy, pick 'em, pick 'em! That's a great long time! That's Lou'siana, ain't it? Keep on pickin' 'em 'til I get back to Lou'siana. That's it, boot it! Stomp 'em real good for me.)

I rode the Lou'siana Special, caused me to lose my best friend
I rode the Lou'siana Special, caused me to lose my best friend
Now what hurts me so bad, I won't see her smiling face again

That's why I'm goin' to Lou'siana, peoples, and it won't be long
That's why I'm goin' to Lou'siana, peoples, and it won't be long
I'm gon' make Lou'siana, peoples, be my native home
