At first mom and papa called their little boy,

already mama's cooking papa somethin' to eat.
D
At half past, papa he's a ready to go,
                               A        D
he jumps in his pirogue headed down the bayou.

CHORUS:
         G
He's got fishin' lines strung across the Louisiana 
                                  D     G
River..gotta catch a big fish for us to eat.
G
He's settin' his traps, catchin' anything he can.
G                           
Gotta make a livin', he's a Louisiana man.
                            D         G
Gotta make a livin', he's a Louisiana man.

On the river floats papa's great big boat, that's

It takes every bit of a night and day to even reach

the place where the people stay.

again cause there's work to be done.
