Born on the Bayou

These reminded me so much of Creedence Clearwater Revival that I had to include the words. All but the last one were shot on Caddo Lake on the Texas/Louisana border not too far from Marshall. The last was shot north of Marshall near Jefferson. All in al a 400 mile round trip but I got about 125 photos, a lot of which are usable. Hope you enjoy and if you've been there, bring back happy memories.

Now,when I was just a little boy,
Standin' to my Daddy's knee,
My poppa said, “Son, don't let the man get you
Do what he done to me.”
'Cause he'll get you now, now.

And I can remember the forth of July,
Runnin' through the backwood, bare.
And I can still my old hound dog barkin'.
Chasin' down a hoodoo there.
Chasin' down a hoodoo there.

Born on the Bayou;
Born on the Bayou;
Born on the Bayou;

Wish I was back on the Bayou.
Rollin' with some Cajun Queen.
Wishin' I were a fast freight train,
Just a chooglin' on down to New Orleans.

I can remember the forth of July,
Runnin' through the backwood bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin',
Chasin' down a hoodoo there.
Chasin' down a hoodoo there.

Born on the Bayou;
Born on the Bayou;
Born on the Bayou.

Wow these are gorgeous! Wonderful fall color and reflections add to the charming moss and bayou. I'm from Louisiana but not born on the bayou :-)
