  • Lyrics: Came into this world my dad a Cajun we owned the land as far as we could see As a boy I grew that land was all I knew and when he died he left it all to me That was where I came to earn my living where I took my bride and raised my children too One day the trucks came in and shattered where I'd been at Campbell Wells the earths ashamed of you Chorus: Because nature cries in louisiannas skies as the Cajun sun is sinking low And my children cry on the bayou tonight as we say goodbye to Zydaco Well the air is thick and lord it's hard to breath it The doctors say my kids are all sick too But you know this is my home and I won't leave this land alone Chorus I asked the man if he could help to save us I asked to have a poison swamp removed But when you talk about big cash some laws might not get passed When the oil man has moved in next to you Chorus Well I swore that to the end I'd surely fight it Had to send my wife and kids away from me But I'll keep up the fight till the powers do what's right and restore this land for all the world to see Chorus So I took my battle up to Baton Rouge
