Lyrics

Tadpole, Louisiana


On the shores of the Pontchartrain
Sits Tadpole, Louisiana
It's always in my heart
And on my Cajun brain
My Mama still lives
In the same shack where she raised me
All us dozen kids but one moved on
The dogs and cats remain

There was a tattoo parlor next to the
church
On the street where I was raised
You could get inked up on Sunday
And hear God being praised
It was a very tough neighborhood
I got my butt kicked many times
Breaking hearts of every gal I knew
Was the least of my many crimes

On the shores of the Pontchartrain
Sits Tadpole, Louisiana
It's always in my heart
And on my Cajun brain
My mama still lives
In the same shack where she raised me
All us dozen kids but one moved on
The dogs and cats remain

If we weren't fishin' we were huntin'
To keep the family fed
We made us a little money
When the Snappers were good and red
Yeah the Crescent City loves em black
In butter 'stead of fried
Smothered with a lot of crab
And a Remoulade on the side

On the shores of the Pontchartrain
Sits Tadpole,Louisiana
It's always in my heart
And on my Cajun brain
My mama still lives
In the same shack where she raised me
All us dozen kids but one moved on
The dogs and cats remain

All I wore was a huntin' boots
Never had no ties
Never had no suits
I love Mallards
But I don't like Coots
It's all part of my Cajun roots

On the shores of the Pontchartrain
Sits Tadpole, Louisiana
It's always in my heart
And on my Cajun brain
Woah my mama still lives
In the same shack where she raised me
All us dozen kids but one moved out
The dogs and cats remained
All but one or two or three moved out
The dogs and cats remained
