Lyrics


Bayou Sef:

(spoken)....The loneliest place in Louisiana....is Bayou Sef...."

Bayou Sef is a lonely place near Houma
Bayou Sef has the tallest cypress tree
Bayou Sef has the biggest fattest crawfish
Bayou Sef is the place I want to be

Just a little bit south of Baton Rouge
Is a place that I call home
Immortalized in Evangeline
About Cajuns forced to roam
My 18-wheeler took me north
To the east and to the west
But every month I head straight back
To the place I call the best

Bayou Sef is a lonely place near Houma
Bayou Sef has the tallest cypress tree
Bayou Sef has the biggest fattest crawfish
Bayou Sef is the place I want to be

The pouldeau's under water
Kingfisher in the tree
The smell of gumbo cooking
Can knock you to your knees
The gators glisten in the sun
While the turtles took a snooze
Don't argue with a moccasin
Because you know you're gonna loose

Bayou Sef is a lonely place near Houma
Bayou Sef has the tallest cypress tree
Bayou Sef has the biggest fattest crawfish
Bayou Sef is the place I want to be

(Bridge)
I really hate this truck of mine
But I gotta pay the bills
Up and down the interstate
No longer gives me thrills

The sweet smell of the button bush
The honeybees in the Tupelo
The faint sound of a fiddle
At the start of a fais do do
My pirogue and my paddle
Will take me where I want to be
To dance all night in the bright moonlight
With my sweet Jolie Mimi

Bayou Sef is a lonely place near Houma
Bayou Sef has the tallest cypress tree
Bayou Sef has the biggest fattest crawfish
Bayou Sef is the place I want to be
Bayou Sef is the place I want to be
