The Ballad of Jean Callais
Vin Bruce

His name was Jean Callais, its told in Cajun lore
He lived by the seal of the girl named Marie and him she did adore
On Louisiana's shore (On Louisiana's shore)

When the sun arose each morning, his boat would carry him
To fish til the tide would bring him inside, when the sun was growing dim
Where Marie would wait for him (Where Marie would wait for him)

Then one day an angry sea
Took our brave young Jean Callais away

The Cajuns tell the story when the evening sun goes down
How a storm from the east like an angry beast took Jean Callais down
To a far off fishing ground (To a far off fishing ground)

Every evening toward the ocean, Marie looks out her door
Its been many years, she's shed many tears still she waits for evermore
On Louisiana's shore (On Louisiana's shore)

Then one day an angry sea
Took our brave young Jean Callais away

Every evening toward the ocean, Marie looks out her door
Its been many years, she's shed many tears still she waits for evermore
On Louisiana's shore (On Louisiana's shore, On Louisiana's shore )
