New Orleans based Artist Jeremy Joyce re-releases his Louisiana Anthem “My Little Peace of Mind” with striking Lyric Video shot in Lutcher Louisiana in the “River Parish” of St. James.

Originally from Philadelphia, PA Jeremy Joyce wrote the song after visiting the River Parish for a Christmas Eve gathering. “Some places just feel like home, even if it’s not your home. I felt that there and connection to the deep cultural roots of South Louisiana”

At its core “Peace of Mind” is a Cajun Rock song, but Joyce’s Philly and NJ roots show with a sound treatment that more reflects the rock sounds of his motherland. Alex Geddes’ (Durand Jones) ripping sax solo dueling with Joyce’s eighties shred stylings, elevate the track to fist pumping banger.

Lyrics

Rolling down I-10 going East bound
Crossing Lake Charles, well it won't be long now
The refinery's glow burned a hole in the sky

Atchafalaya beneath my wheels
We got something that you can't steal
Louisiana Bayou reflecting the pale moon light

I wanna go home where the Mississippi River flows
Down in to the Gulf of Mexico
Standing on the river bank watching those ship go by-y-y

Louisiana women well they're so damn fine
I can't wait to get back to my
Peace of Mind
She's my little Peace of Mind

Plaquemines, Lafayette, Algiers, Chauvin
Second only to the promised land
Jesus take my hands and let me fly

I'm going down a parish road on a Christmas eve
I got a woman and she waits for me
I can see the fire in her eyes

I wanna go home where the Mississippi River flows
Down in to the Gulf of Mexico
Standing on the river bank watching those ship go by-y-y

Louisiana women well they're so damn fine
I can't wait to get back to my
Peace of Mind
She's my little Peace of Mind

New York City with its cold concrete
People staring at their phones and feet
Nobody said hello or said goodbye

So I want to get back to where the air is thick
Further south than what you think The South is
We're living a different way of life

I wanna go home where the Mississippi River flows
Down in to the Gulf of Mexico
Standing on the river bank watching those ship go by-y-y

Louisiana women well they're so damn fine
I can't wait to get back to my
Peace of Mind
She's my little Peace of Mind
