Released in 1966/'67.

INTRO: 
Dm
Oh, yeah, Cajun man, do all he can,
F                          C         F     G
gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.

#1.
   C                                 Am7
At birth, Mama 'n' Papa called their little boy Ned.
C                              G     C
Raised him on the banks of the river bed.
C                     Am7
A houseboat tied to a big, tall tree,
  C                       G        C
A home for my Mama and my Papa and me.
    C                         Am7
The clock strikes three, Papa jumps to his feet,
  C                         G            C
already Mama's cookin' Papa somethin' to eat.
   C                       Am7
At half-past, Papa, he's a-ready to go,
   C                            G        C
He jumps in his pirogue, headed down the bayou.

CHORUS:
           F
He's got a fishin' line strung across a Louisiana river,
F                          C     F
gotta catch a big fish for us to eat.
   F
He sets his traps in the swamps, catches anything he can..
F                          C         F
Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.
F                          C         F
Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.
    Dm
Oh, yeah, Cajun man, do all he can,
F                          C         F    G
gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.

#2.
     C                     Am7
They call Mama Rita and my Daddy, Jack.
    C                          G        C
The little baby brother on the floor is Mack.
C                     Am7
Bryn and Lynn are the family twins,
C                       G         C
Big brother Ed's on the bayou fishin'.
C                         Am7
On the river float Papa's great big boat,
C                       G    C
that's how my Papa goes into town.
C                      Am7
Takes every bit of the night and day
C                               G      C
to even reach a place where the people stay.

CHORUS:
           F
He's got a fishin' line strung across a Louisiana river,
F                          C     F
gotta catch a big fish for us to eat.
   F
He sets his traps in the swamps, catches anything he can..
F                          C         F
Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.
F                          C         F
Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.
 
#3.
C                      Am7
I can hardly wait 'til tomorrow comes 'round.
C                                G       C
That's the day my Papa takes his furs to town.
C                       Am7
Papa said, 'Son, we got lines to run.'
C                                  G          C
We come back again, 'cause there's work to be done.'

CHORUS:
           F
He's got a fishin' line strung across a Louisiana river,
F                          C     F
gotta catch a big fish for us to eat.
   F
He sets his traps in the swamps, catches anything he can..
F                          C         F
Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.
F                          C         F
Gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.
    Dm
Oh, yeah, Cajun man, do all he can,
F                          C         F    
gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.
F                          C         F    
gotta make a livin' he's a Louisiana man.
