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
