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

CHORUS:

                                  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.
