My heart is heavy to see a levee, A field of cane and corn I've not forgotten my land of cotton Down where I was born I'm through knocking around `Cause I'm Dixie bound Louisiana, Louisiana I've been sad, mighty sad Louisiana, Louisiana Now I'm glad, so glad The whistle's blowin' The train is goin' Here I come, here I come I'm tired of roamin' That's why I'm homin' Back to happiness, and then some Louisiana, no place is grander I declare, I declare No skies are bluer No friends are truer Anywhere, anywhere Take me to your heart Give me one more start I'm the little child Just been runnin' wild Louisiana, Louisiana my own. Louisiana, Louisiana I've been sad, very sad Louisiana, Louisiana Now I'm glad, you wanna know `cause why, well listen The whistle's blowin' The train is goin' And here I come, here I come I'm so tired of roamin' That's why I'm homin' Takin' the midnight choo-choo train Won't be long till I'm back again Louisiana, no place is grander I declare, I declare No skies are bluer No friends are truer Anywhere, anywhere (Short Musical Break) Louisiana, Louisiana my own.
