week thirtythree: raining in louisiana

raining in louisiana

she stole a honda fit in baton rouge
stopped in lafayette to get some food
they caught her in the dollar store
mandatory minimum 24

it’s raining in louisiana now
it’s raining in louisiana now
oh my walk a line
everybody all the time

he was just a prison guard at first
he was just a prison guard at first
and he’d say she’s gotta learn
not to take what isn’t hers

every morning he got up for work
every morning he got up for work
oh my god before you know
they’re caling him the cfo

and he’ll say he made more than he lost
but he never pays what it costs

there were days she could see forever
there were days she could see forever
she could walk her mind through
everyone she ever knew

it’s raining in louisiana now
it’s raining in louisiana now
and we all know who’s staying dry
and we all know the reasons why

and he’ll say he made more than he lost
but he didn’t pay what it cost

he can make a grand a day when
he fills up his 40 cages
he can buy a warm coat
and he can buy a brand new phone
he can walk a shiny street
call himself an llc
and he can hold his hand to god
say he pays for everything that he’s got
but he doesn’t pay what it costs

it’s raining in louisiana now
it’s raining in louisiana now
she got out monday last
50/50 she’ll go back
