Down the Zydeco Road
lyrics and music by PGrimaldi

I pushed it to the limit and I've crossed that line
I've always had to worry but now I've got to find a way
I need a little bit of comfort, need a little bit of soul
I'm standing at a crossroads but I really want to know...
want to know what is common for a common man
to do what is right, to do what I can
there's a better way of living by the folks I'm told
down in Louisiana where the good times roll...
here I go, I'm down the zydeco road

It's not the way you start, it's not the way you end,
it's what goes down between it that makes it all a grand plan
'cause you might be dumb, you might be smart
it's not going to matter if you don't have the heart, have a heart
I believe there's deliverance in the things we choose
it maybe the women, it might be the booze
but there's a better way of living by the folks I'm told
down in Louisiana where the good times roll...
here I go, I'm down the zydeco road

I'm going to the country, to the promise land
they got the gumbo cookin' and they play Acadianne
so if you want to know, what it's all about
you don't need a reason to be kickin' it up down there, up down there
because they dance all morning and they'll dance all night
do the bayou pon pon 'till the egrets fly
there's a better way to party by the folks I'm told
down in Louisiana where the good times roll...
here I go, I'm down the zydeco road
