Cane River Blues (Carroll)

Down in Louisiana I got too much to lose
Down in Louisiana I got too much to lose
I spent twenty years of living withthese old Cane River blues

I work at tending farming, Jacob is my name
I work at tending farming, Jacob is my name
I spent half my life gettin blisters from cuttin sugar cane

I got me a son named Jimmie, got me a wife named Marie
I got me a son named Jimmie, got me a wife named Marie
She said you're getting old workin in the sun all day but you done alright by me

She said Jimmie needs some schoolin so he doesn't end up like you
She said Jimmie needs some schoolin so he doesn't end up like you
But buyin his books on the money I make is a damn hard thing to do

Mr Jackson wants to see me and he called me in at four
Mr Jackson wants to see me and he called me in at four
He said I got me a combine, Jacob,I don't need you anymore

Well, I got a brother named Virgil, he sells crack cocaine
I got me a brother named Virgil, he sells crack cocaine
Well, he got rich a long time ago when he left that sugar cane

Virgil said hey Jacob I'll make you a deal
Virgil said hey Jacob I'll make you a deal
I gotta get some goods to Opelousas, I need you behind the wheel

We were headed south on a two lane road called Highway 190
We were headed south on a two lane road called Highway 190
Mr. Trooper pulled us over outside of town, he said step out nice and slow

Mr. Trooper shot poor Virgil when he tried to run
Mr. Trooper shot poor Virgil when he tried to run
But I killed Mr. Trooper with Virgil's old shotgun

Down in Louisiana I got nothing left to lose
Down in Louisiana I got nothing left to lose
Now I'm goin to Angola with these Cane River blues
Now I'm goin to Angola with these Cane River blues
