Stars On The Water Lyrics 

Down in Louisiana - bayous by and by
Pirogue pole or your natural soul - Keeps you tied to a tree high tide
Beer joint lights come on
And then the crowd starts rollin' in
Pretty soon you got stars on the water - You got stars on the water
You got stars on the water - let it rain

Beaumont to Biloxi - Sea breeze at your door
Gypsy rains, dang hurricanes white silver sandy shore
"Blue Light" lounge is shinin'
Way out on the view
It looks just like stars on the water - Just like stars on the water
Just like stars on the water - let it rain

When it's midnight down in Mobile - Moonbeams on the bay
They come from miles around to dance the jukebox down and dig the good time sounds they play
All across the harbour
Night lights shinin' on
It looks just like stars on the water - Just like stars on the water
Just like stars on the water - let it rain

Pretty soon ya got stars on the water - You got stars on the water
It's like stars on the water - let it rain
