Tom Paxton - Louise Lyrics




People comin' in to see Louise
Comin' quietly by twos and by threes
Some are standin' some are down on their knees
Louise ain't gonna make it no more

Her mama has her head down low
Her daddy says he told her so
Her lover has to turn and go
Louise ain't gonna make it no more

"Louise," somebody said this mornin'
"Louise, you were the best we had
Louise, I won't look for no reason
And I won't cry 'til I get home"

Lotta people said they knew her well
They were buddies in the Birmingham cell
You could ask her but she'd never tell
Now Louise ain't gonna make it no more

"Louise," somebody said this mornin'
"Louise, you were the best we had
Louise, I won't look for no reason
And I won't cry 'til I get home"

People comin' in to see Louise
Comin' quietly by twos and by threes
Some are standin' some are down on their knees
Louise ain't gonna make it no more
