“My Southwest Louisiana Home” Lyrics
From the Calcasieu down to the Gulf of Mexico
I can smell the sweet magnolias, feel the warm breezes blow
I can almost taste the boudin, and that bowl of hot gumbo
I can hear my mama callin’ jus’ can’t wait to get back home

Sway to the music, Spanish moss is moving slow
Come on, come on to my Southwest Louisiana home

From the Gulf of Mexico to up to the Calcasieu
Come on home with me, we’ll forget about our blues
Catching all our treasures at the Mardi Gras parade
As the floats roll by, you can let your worries fade

Sway to the music, Spanish moss is moving slow
Come on, come on to my Southwest Louisiana home

Lake Charles, Louisiana right there in the heel of the boot
When you get to town just slip on your dancin’ shoes
Let’s go out to the water take a walk along the beach
See the birds take flight with the sunlight on their wings

Sway to the music, Spanish moss is moving slow
Come on, come on to my Southwest Louisiana home

I’ll take ya out to dinner for some crabs and étouffée
Let’s make a toast to good times and new friends along the way
Everybody’s dancing, let’s go out to the show
Try your luck in the evening with the sun sinking low.

Sway to the music, Spanish moss is moving slow
Come on, come on to my Southwest Louisiana home

Come on, come on to my Southwest Louisiana home
