about

Un peu de français louisianais pour vous-autres ;)

lyrics

Oh Louisiane, ma Louisiane
Here’s my home and here’s my land
Oh Louisiana, je t’aime
Je vas toujours être la louisianaise

Me, I grew up in the wind
Down where the streets and sidewalk end
With my flower necklaces

Down in Nova Scotia, it has been some years
Down in Nova Scotia, since I met you dear
Where the water glistened and the grass grew gold
The Atlantic Ocean and the lighthouse coast
But I still missed home

Oh Louisiana, ma Louisiane
Here’s my home and here’s my land

Quand j’étais jeune je pensais souvent aller loin d’ici
Et moi, j’ai dit : « Je veux partir voir tous les autres pays. »
Oh mais j’ai plus d’années asteur et moi, je connais
Qu’il est beau partout, mais Louisiane est parfaite, est parfaite

Oh Louisiana, ma Louisiane
Here’s my home and here’s my land
Oh Louisiana, oh je t’aime
Je vas toujours être la louisianaise

Moi, le vent m’a élevée
Là, sous les chènes et le soleil
Dans les fleurs du champ de mai

Currently living and writing music in Poitiers, France, I hope this is the first album of many. ... more
