Anders Osborne - Louisiana Gold

VERSE   1
 
He   came   from   Northern   California
He   loved   to   ride   them   trains
He   had   a   hand   made   beat   up   leather   bag   where   he   kept   all   his   childhood   pains
Left   his   mama   and   his   daddy,   When   he   was   barely   16
You   know   he   never   really   followed   money,   Never   really   had   a   dream
 
CHORUS
 
Loved   the   thought   of   drifting
to   live   by   no   mans   plan
solitude   is   freedom,   yeah
The   road   made   him   a   man  
 
VERSE   2
From   coast   to   coast   across   every   state,   on   Pacific   Illinois
He   saw   every   town   he   every   town   dreamt   about   since   he   was   a   little   boy
He   ended   up   down   in   New   Orleans   working   on   a   folsom   farm
He   took   LSD   and   danced   all   night,   you   know   he   met   a   woman   that   made   him   calm
 
CHORUS
Loved   the   thought   of   drifting
to   live   by   no   mans   plan
solitude   is   freedom,   yeah
The   road   made   him   a   man
 
VERSE   3
 
Somewhere   deep   inside   of   him   changed   when   he   saw   her   face
yeah   he   felt   like   she   knew   him   well   from   another   time   and   place
you   know   they   woke   up   with   the   sun   one   day   and   their   travelin'   days   were   done
settled   down   in   a   shotgun   house,   down   on   bayou   St.   John
 
CHORUS
 
Loved   the   thought   of   drifting
To   live   by   no   mans   land
Solitude   is   freedom,   yeah  
The   road   made   him   a   man
 
**Instrumental   Break**
 
OUTRO

And   if   you   wind   that   river   long   enough   you   get   Louisiana   gold
