L’air De La Louisiane
Written by: Jesse Winchester
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Hot Water (1988)

Jimmy’s Notes:
Jesse Winchester sang this song many years ago as an opening act for us and I’ve always wanted to do it. To be able to sing it with James Taylor and Timothy B. Schmit was as much a treat for me as I hope it is for you.

Promenade dans un bois la vielle Louisiane
Les ombres lougnes nos pas silents
l'air de la Louisiane
Toi et moi ne parlant pas
en sucant d'la canne
Pour un instant je suis content en
l'air de la Louisiane
Pour un instant je suis content en
l'air de la Louisiane

English Lyric
A walk in the woods of old Louisiana
the shadows are long
Our steps are silent in the Louisiana air
You and I say nothing as we suck sugar cane
For one minute I'm happy in the Louisiana air
