Goin’ down to New Orleans
Goin’ to find me a Cajun queen
Goin’ dance that Cajun woman all night
Take her up to Memphis
Show her where the good blues lives
Come on mama, show me your tricks
Take her home to Austin
Show her off to my kin
Might just make that Cajun woman my wife
The story: First, my deep apologies for the recording. It is still a work in progress.
And, there isn’t much of a story either. I was teaching myself slide guitar and hit some licks that bounced between the strumming and slide you hear in the song. I thought to myself “sounds a little Louisiana to me.” That of course got me to thinking about Cajuns and some of the too-sexy-for-words Cajun gals I’ve met.
So, I started singing whatever came to mind. “Goin’ down to New Orleans” seemed like a good start. The rest just sorta leaked out from there.
