lyrics

So in that sun stained house where my father raised his son,
was the same old house, where his father raised one.
And under the old oak tree where I buried a part of my family,
I remember, what he'd say to me.

When I die I'll go to Baton Rouge.
Lay my body in the waves.
When I die I'll go to Baton Rouge.
Cause' heaven's just too crowded anyway.

When doubt creeps in, a cynical demon in words.
His tongue's dancing loudly, his views they contort
He's leaving, She's lying, there's nothing worth finding.
Am I out here all alone?
This disarray it will convey, a broken heart or a solemn day,
a simple whim or an honest friend
a common hope we might ascend
and as we dream this simple dream, I only ask one more thing
I only hope we can find some peace in our lives.

When I die I'll go to Baton Rouge.
Lay my body in the waves.
When I die I'll go to Baton Rouge.
Cause' heaven's just too crowded anyway.
