The Ballard Of Isadore Comeaux
Johnny Blaine

Many years ago, in a Louisiana town
Isadore Comeaux shot his brother down
'Cause his brother was a-messin' with his gal' Amy Lou
When the hussy started cryin', he shot her down, too

He hid in the woods, 'cause the sheriff was a-comin'
He couldn't bear the thought of a-living in a jail
He ate muscadines so that he could keep a-runnin'
He'd rather keep a-runnin' than be locked up in a cell
www.cajunlyrics.com
Yeah, he ran through the swamps and he ran through the marshes
And he ran through places where a skeeter couldn't buzz
The heat was on, but he kept on a-runnin'
Swearin' that he never would be caught by the fuzz

He couldn't run forever, but he said "I'm gonna try
I'll keep dodgin' bullets, 'cause I ain't a-gonna fry"
One day an alligator liked to send him to his fate
Izzy grabbed the gator and he closed his alli-gate

He couldn't bear the thought of a-living in a jail
He ate muscadines so that he could keep a-runnin'

Yeah, he ran through the swamps and he ran through the marshes
And he ran through places where a skeeter couldn't buzz
The heat was on, but he kept on a-runnin'
Swearin' that he never would be caught by the fuzz

Yes, he's still living in the Louisiana woods
Nobody ever found him, 'cause nobody ever could
One day a revenuer accidentally found his hut
Izzy grabbed his musket and he shot him in the will...y
