- 7th fret 
On the bayou muddy waters warm 
And mosquitoes got a place to swarm 
And the gumbo's always hot on the bayou, 
Down in  Cajun country. 
On the bayou you better take your fishing pole 
And if you're thirsty, 
I got some Dixie's icy cold. 
Try some Crawfish Etouffe, Oyster Po'boy, 
Down in Cajun country. 
{riff 1  - three times} 
On the bayou I met Alligator Henri. 
He was poaching, but that ain't the story he tried to tell me. 
Born and raised in New Orleans, he's a Creole 
Down in Cajun country. 
{riff 1  - three times} 
On the bayou's only place I feel at home 
And I'll never, never, never feel the need to roam. 
I'm a Coonass through and through 
I don't care none 
Down in Cajun Country. 
{riff 1}
