    Lyrics

    Your teacher might've told you
    It was five thousand something feet
    That ain't too far in a car or on a city street
    Let me tell you son, back where I come from
    You learn as a little child
    There ain't nothing any longer than a Louisiana country mile

    Amos Walker said, he'd shoot me next time
    He caught me crossing his fence
    But I was too much in love to really think about it back then
    Walking that tree cross Thibidioux Creek
    I can still see them gators smile
    But she was worth every step of that Louisiana country mile

    That path got shorter as I fell deeper
    I'd swim that old swamp if I had to to see her
    Those days are gone and she's a memory
    But when that road looks long it hits me
    There's a treasure at the end of most of life's troubles and trials
    And there ain't nothing longer than a Louisiana country mile

    I've come a long way from that little house back in the woods
    And I know, I don't get back there as much as I should
    But every now and then when the walls close in, I can still smile
    I close my eyes and let my mind walk that Louisiana country mile

    That path got shorter as I fell deeper
    I'd swim that old swamp if I had to to see her
    Those days are gone and she's a memory
    But when that road looks long it hits me
    There's a treasure at the end of most of life's troubles and trials
    And there ain't nothing longer than a Louisiana country mile
    Don't talk till you've walked that Louisiana country mile
