LOUISIANA RAIN Lyrics

Artist: Tom Petty
Album: Damn The Torpedoes

Well it was out in California by the San Diego sea
That was when I was taken in and it left its mark on me
Yeah she nearly drove me crazy with all those China toys
And I know she really didn't mean a thing to any of those sailor boys

Louisiana rain is falling at my feet
Baby I'm noticing the change as I move down the street
Louisiana rain is soaking through my shoes
I may never be the same when I reach Baton Rouge

South Carolina put out its arms for me
Right up until everything went black somewhere on Lonely Street
And I still can't quite remember who helped me to my feet
Thank God for a love that followed the angel's remedy

Louisiana rain is falling just like tears
Running down my face, washing out the years
Louisiana rain is soaking through my shoes
I may never be the same when I reach Baton Rouge

Well I never will get over this English refugee
Singing to the jukebox in some all-night beanery
Yeah he was eating pills like candy and chasing them with tea
You should have seen him lick his lips, that old black muddied beak

Louisiana rain is falling at my feet
Baby I'm noticing the change as I move down the street
Louisian rain is soaking through my shoes
I may never be the same when I reach Baton Rouge

Louisiana rain is falling just like tears
Running down my face, washing out the years
Louisiana rain is soaking through my shoes
I may never be the same when I reach Baton Rouge

A couple of errors. In the 4th line of the second verse, it's "thank god for a long-neck bottle, the angel's remedy." And in the fourth line of the third verse it's "that old black Molly B."

In the live version appearing on the Live Anthology, the third and fourth lines of the second verse are "It was just some mean ol' poison, that I took up my nose; thank god for a long-neck bottle, the angel's antidote."

Actually, last line of the third verse should be "You should have seen him lick his lips at that old black maitre d'." (French for waiter.)
