Song Description

Life as an Oil well driller (roughneck) in Louisiana

Lyrics

Twenty tons of steel hanging over his head
Fifteen thousand foot of hole below his feet
Yeah he's working everyday to keep his family clothed and fed
And he's a credit to his country it's been said

Cause he's a Louisiana Roughneck diggin holes in the land
He'll keep this country goin he's a hard working man
He's a Louisiana Roughneck cajun as they come
When this country ain't got no oil he's gonna find some

When Friday comes around, he gets his pay
Ain't no ball and chain or bars gonna change his ways
Well he jumps in his old car hits all the honky tonks and bars
And parties from the early night till the break of day

Cause he's a Louisiana Roughneck drunk as he can be
Sometimes he gets so drunk he can hardly see
He's a Louisiana Roughneck cajun as they come
When this country ain't got no oil he's gonna find some

Come Monday he's as tired as he can be
But throw that chain boy pull them slips its got to be
He ain't gonna let his people down he'll keep on pushing through the ground
Till the last drop of southern oil has seen its day

Cause he's a Louisiana Roughneck diggin holes in the land
He'll keep this country goin he's a hard working man
He's a Louisiana Roughneck cajun as they come
When this country ain't got no oil he's gonna find some

He's a Louisiana Roughneck diggin holes in the land
He'll keep this country goin he's a hard working man
He's a Louisiana Roughneck cajun as they come
When this country ain't got no oil he's gonna find some

He's a Louisiana Roughneck diggin holes in the land
He'll keep this country goin he's a hard working man
He's a Louisiana Roughneck cajun as they come
When this country ain't got no oil he's gonna find some
