Dark Fire Cloud

And The Lightning Band

I got the hippy ti-yeaux, all because I’ve got to go. Yes I’ve gotta do…Get to Louisiana Bayou.  I’m going back to my yellow school bus, in Louisiana Bayou, cool night breeze, lightning bugs in the trees. I wanna go back to Lafayette Parish…in Louisiana Bayou. The Zydeco, R&B Calypso Reggae melody!
           “Louisiana Bayou”  Album: ORIGIN, NATURE & DESTINY
