    Primarily for foreign customers - (foreign shipping cost is considerably less without the jewel case. US shipping is the same as with jewel case). Included are the disk, booklet and traycard to fit a standard jewel case.

    (If you are in the US, you can order this if you don't want the jewel case, but you don't save on shipping in the US; it's not easy to take apart or put together a jewel case.)

    If you are a foreign customer and want the CD in a jewel case we suggest ordering "Weather Reports" from CDBaby.com; they charge less for foreign shipping with jewel case.

about

“My older brother Henry inspired this song. He lives on a ranch in Louisiana and actually does ride around on a “Gator” - a brand of golf cart!” -Emily

lyrics

BLACK BAYOU, by Emily Cantrell ©2012

1. I travel all over this doggoned land
Make my livin' with my own two hands
Playin' guitar and singin' a song
If you sing it from the heart, you can never go wrong

2. Pappy's got a place that he calls his own
Built out of bricks and Louisiana stone
Green fields under a sky steel blue
It runs right down to the Black Bayou

Chorus:
I'm goin' on down to the Black Bayou
Gonna see my brother and his sweet chou chou
Nephew stirrin' up a gumbo stew
They got it real good on the Black Bayou
Yeah, they got it good on the Black Bayou

3. Don't wait too long ‘til you visit your kin
The kids grow fast and they blow to the wind
My family, they all shine like gold
They teach you when you're young
And they love you when you're old

end:
They ride on the gators on the Black Bayou
And they eat mashed potaters on the Black Bayou
They drink a little whisky on the Black Bayou
And they get a little frisky on the Black Bayou
