Cajun Woman


Lyrics

Baby, that preacher gave you his pain To ?let the window? on his finger in the undertaker's name

Chorus: Oh, cajun woman Some people still call you a queen I don't believe you're sinking With all the trouble you've been

He grew up in the bayou with a Bible round his neck He never loved a woman in the way you would expect

(Chorus)

Don't tell him by his father, don't tell him by his name The dogs won't get to heaven, they'll crucify his brain

(Chorus)

Well, it's welcome to the graveyard and welcome to the throne Welcome to the orphanage where your family sit and moan Welcome to the liquor stand and welcome to the park Your mama never told you how lucky you are

(Chorus)
