The Parish Line

Young temptation
Please don't wink your eyes
They got laws in Louisiana
Make a grown man cry
And I don't want no trouble
Beyond the parish line

Please I beg you
Don't try to hold me tight
There are those who would help me
Not make it home tonight
Other eyes are watchin'
Beyond the parish line

Love and misfortune
Together by some design
Could have sure made it easy
For gold a fool to find
And I don't take no chance
Beyond the parish line

Wheels are turning
But I let them pass me by
I'm gonna walk to the boarder
And then I will hitch a ride
And I don't trust nobody
Till I cross that parish line

I don't trust nobody
Till I cross that parish line

I don't trust nobody
Till I cross that parish line
