Song Meaning
Verse 1
A long time ago, yeah
Before you was born dude
When I was still single
And life was great
Verse 2
I held this job as a traveling salesman
That kept me moving from state to state
Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette
State of Louisiana
Verse 3
Wondering where a city boy could go
To get a little conversation
Drink a little red wine
Catch a little bit of those Cajun girls
Dancing to Zydeco
Verse 4
Along come a young girl
She's pretty as a prayerbook
Sweet as an apple on Christmas day
I said good gracious can this be my luck
Verse 5
If that's my prayerbook
Lord let us pray
Verse 6
Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette
State of Louisiana
Wondering what a city boy could do
To get her in a conversation
Verse 7
Drink a little red wine
Dance to the music of Clifton Chenier
The King of the Bayou
Verse 8
Well, that was your mother
And that was your father
Before you was born dude
When life was great
Verse 9
You are the burden of my generation
I sure do love you
But let's get that straight
Verse 10
Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette
Across the street from The Public
Heading down to the Lone Star Cafe
Maybe get a little conversation
Verse 11
Drink a little red wine
Standing in the shadow of Clifton Chenier
Dancing the night away
