lyrics

Well I was made
Of Louisiana rain,
My body born of the South
And I rose with the cain,
My momma gave me my name,
But it never left her mouth

I knew from the start
That the pieces of my heart
I'd lose under this world's weight
And it hurt so hard
So I ran so far
That I forgot from where I came

At Grand Chenier
I saw mon père
He said "take this with you son"
He whispered in my ear
And he went away in the air
"It's so simple baby, god is the sun."
