lyrics

I gotta hitch a ride to Pittsburg, so I can meet up with my Gypsy Queen
Float that riverboat down the Mighty Mississippi to the banks of New Orleans
Head on to the Bayou, where the water is the land
Rendezvous with that Voodoo lady gonna take me by the hand

The Cajun fiddle’s playin’ “Mon Chapeau”
Come on and dance to the rhythm of the zydeco
Laissez les bon temps rouler, mama
They’ll keep the fiddle playing ‘till the early dawn

Hey-ey, Hey-ey
Hey-ey, that’s where I wanna stay
Whoa-oh, Whoa-oh
Whoa-oh, the only place I wanna go
Down to the hollow

Set out on the back porch, drinkin chicory in the shade
With a rockin chair and a tricone Gibson singing songs for the dog days
‘Neath the tupelo and cypress, we can shout “Marie Laveau”
But in a few more hours when the sun goes down, there’s a place we’ll want to go

Laissez les bon temps rouler, mama
They keep the fiddle playing ‘till the early dawn
Got the Joie de Vivre and the Fae Do-do
Come on and dance to the rhythm of the zydeco

Hey-ey, Hey-ey
Hey-ey, that’s where I wanna stay
Whoa-oh, Whoa-oh
Whoa-oh, the only place I wanna go
Down to the hollow
