Larry Sepulvado: Music

That Girl I Met From Lafayette

writer: Larry Sepulvado

Long dark song! Todd Sharp & Randy Thomas's guitar solos scream & Loyce Washington's backup almost steals my song from me. My personal favorite of all the songs I've written.

That Girl I Met From Lafayette

 

Screamin’ down I-10, rubber burnin’ up but then a man'll do what a man’s gotta do

Come sunset… looks like Lafayette Lake Charles starin’ down my rear view

It's been a long time, your mem’ry’s eating up my mind God I gotta get back to you

Cause when your fingers snapped you knew I'd come running back 

Specially after all you put me through

 

 

Bet I'll regret the day I met that girl from Lafayette

Gonna wanna forget the day I met that girl with those Louisiana eyes

You don't even want to really know why

That girl I met from Lafayette will be the death of me yet 

 

Darlin’ is it really true that you're over you know who 

You kissed me hard & dropped us to our knees

Begging me to understand why I was the only man 

Who could put your troubled mind at ease

Intoxicated and consumed by the taste of your perfume 

I could not tell the truth from a lie

But sure as hell this honky tonk angel was bound to be the devil in disguise

 

Chorus

 

Your long legs are lockin’ your black silk stockings around me in a real tight squeeze

Spread out ‘cross your bed, tangled in your web, you whispered baby... do me as you please

Now we’re lying here as wet as two bodies can get our temperature still on the rise

With the window cracked blowin’ a breeze across my back 

I sank into your Louisiana eyes, sank into your Louisiana eyes 

Fell in love with those Louisiana eyes

 

The morning clouds are crying out loud, I rub the sleep from my eyes

The rain is right for sleepin’ late and though you really aren't awake 

Thunder cracks between our every sigh

Then in a burst of flames in screamed a-you know whose name 

He's shootin’ up everything in sight 

One pistol pointed at my head, we both are good as dead 

As he rams that other barrel between your eyes

In a pool of blood I lay here by your side 

Starin’ deep into your Louisiana eyes

   

Knew I’d regret the day I met that girl from Lafayette

Gotta forget the day I met that girl with those Louisiana eyes

She sure could tell a Louisiana lie

That girl I met from Lafayette will be the death of me yet
