HOT LOUISIANA NIGHTS

DEEP IN THE HEART OF A LOUISIANA BAYOU
ME AND MARY JO JACKSON LIVING LIFE ON THE RUN
HIDING OURSELVES FROM THE TERRITORY LAWMAN
HAD US SOME TROUBLE DOWN IN ALABAM(A)

SEEMS A LONG TIME AGO SINCE THAT NIGHT WE WERE DANCING
TO THE “MULESKINNER BLUES” AT THE “BULL BAR AND GRILLE”
AND THOSE MOONSHININ’ HILLBILLIES DROVE INTO TOWN
CRAZY ON WHISKEY AND LOOKING FOR THRILLS

CHORUS:

(WE’RE) RUNNIN’ THRU HOT LOUISIANA NIGHTS
RUNNIN’ THRU HOT LOUISIANA NIGHTS
RUNNIN’ THRU GOTTA RUN ON RUN ON
RUN ON THRU HOT LOUISIANA NIGHTS

IT ALL HAPPENED SO FAST I KNEW SOMETHING WAS WRONG
WHEN WE SAW HOW THOSE MOUNTAIN MEN RAN FROM THE DOOR
THEY’D BEEN MESSIN’ AROUND HURTIN’ MARY JO’S MUMMA
BUT THEY’D NO WAY OF KNOWING WHAT THEY WAS IN FOR

CHORUS:

BRIDGE:

FOUND ‘EM NEXT MORNING WHERE THEY HAD RESTED FOR A SPELL
SHOTGUNNED THEM POOR BOYS WITHOUT NO WARNIN CLEAR TO HELL

WE WERE LONG GONE BEFORE THEY THREW OPEN THE COURTHOUSE
AND THE JUDGE SAID THOSE KIDS AINT DONE NO CRIME AT ALL
BEST WE SEND OUT THE SHERIFF TO TELL ‘EM THE NEWS
THEY DONE SOME KINDA FAVOUR FOR ALABAM LAW

NOW I SAW ME THAT LAWMAN AS HE CAME ON THRU THE CLEARING
AIMED WITH MY GUN LORD I LAID HIM LOW LAID HIM LOW
CLUTCHED IN HIS HAND WAS THE PARDON HE’D BROUGHT US, NOW I.... GOT-TA KEEP RUNNING WITH MY MARY JO

CHORUS: X 2
(WE’RE) RUNNIN’ THRU HOT LOUISIANA NIGHTS
RUNNIN’ THRU HOT LOISIANA NIGHTS
RUNNIN’ THRU GOTTA RUN ON RUN ON
RUN ON THRU LOUISIANA

(WE’RE) RUNNIN’ THRU HOT LOUISIANA NIGHTS
RUNNIN’ THRU HOT LOUISIANA NIGHTS
RUNNIN’ THRU GOTTA RUN ON RUN ON
RUN ON THRU HOT LOUISIANA NIGHTS
