Lyrics

I come from the steel town of Sault Ste. Marie
It’s the land of the Ojibwe where the Great Lakes are three
Got a northern exterior but when all is said and done
I’m just an Acadian son

So sing with me dance with me Acadian girl
We’ll hide in those hills and we’ll leave this world
Down to New Orleans where they’re all having fun
And we’ll join our Acadian sons

Now I live in the big smoke where the towers run high
But it’s all just a big joke cause the fun has run dry
With a fiddle and a flat top a washboard and a squeezebox
We’re a French quarter short of a good time

So sing with me dance with me Acadian girl
We’ll hide in those hills and we’ll leave this world
Down to New Orleans where they’re all having fun
And we’ll join our Acadian sons

They say down in Louisiana it’s good for your soul
With the German and the Spanish and the French Creole
We’ll sing down on Bourbon Street every night
And we’ll dance neath the Cajun moonlight

So sing with me dance with me Acadian girl
We’ll hide in those hills and we’ll leave this world
Down to New Orleans where they’re all having fun
And we’ll join our Acadian sons
