I saw Belladonna's lyrics and immediately thought of a fun, up-tempo song. Thanks for listening.

Lyrics: 

Louisiana @ Donna J Evans 8/01/21

Louisiana’s so fine, and the sun always shines
On my Baby
She’s a sweet little thing, always on my mind
Drivin’ me Crazy
Gonna’ head her way today
They’ll be no more delays
it’s always so cold, here in Montana

Louisiana I’m on my way
Louisiana I’m here to stay
And it won’t be long
Until I’m in your arms again

The Madi Gras’ in town, I’ll hang around
With my Lady
Ipanema bands will play, we’ll party all day
Long and lazy
We’ll sway with the Samba dancers
I’ll be her sweet romancer
Stay for the last call.of a tropicana

Louisiana I’m on my way
Louisiana I’m here to stay
And it won’t be long
Until I’m in your arms again

We’ll sit on the pier as the sun disappears
In the evening
Moonlight on the beach, baby’s so sweet
On night breezes
We’ll be huggin’ and kissin’
Findin’ all that I was missin’
We’ll greet the sunrise, In our cabana

Louisiana I’m on my way
Louisiana I’m here to stay
And it won’t be long
Until I’m in your arms again

Wow, what fun to listen to your song and collaboration. Loving the intro and the vocals coming up with the gorgeous instrumental joining in a duet with the vocals. Fantastic, inspiring lyrics, music, performance and production. A joy to listen to and to imagine the whole story seen, danced, with the Louisiana atmosphere. Feel good, sing along song. Very organic collaboration. You are a beautiful team.

Wow! Great job. Love how you did this. Yes, really a good fit. My husband loved it, he said it's sort of an Irish jig style. I was thinking it's be French cajon, but I think this is much better.

Wow! I loved these lyrics when I read them from @Belladonna and I think you've done them justice! I feel like I'm back at Mardi Gras. Loving the fiddle and energy of this piece. Fantastic collab!
