I got me a son named Jimmie, got me a wife named Marie 
I got me a son named Jimmie, got me a wife named Marie 
She said I'm gettin old workin in the sun all day but you done alright by me 
She said Jimmie needs some schoolin so he doesn't end up like you 
She said Jimmie needs some schoolin so he doesn't end up like you 
But buyin his books on the money I make is a damn hard thing to do 
 
 
Mr Jackson wants to see me and he called me in at four

He said I got me a combine, Jacob,I don't need you anymore 
Well, I got a brother named Virgil, he sells crack cocaine 
I got me a brother named Virgil, he sells crack cocaine 
Well, he got rich a long time ago when he left that sugar cane 
 
Well, Virgil said hey Jacob I'll make you a deal 
I said, Virgil said hey Jacob I'll make you a deal 
I gotta get some goods to Opelousas, I need you behind the wheel 
 
We were headed south on a two lame road called Highway 190 
We were headed south on a two lame road called Highway 190 
Mr. Trooper pulled us over outside of town, he said step out nice and slow 
Mr. Trooper shot poor Virgil when he tried to run 
Mr. Trooper shot poor Virgil when he tried to run 
But I killed Mr. Trooper with Virgil's old shotgun 
 
Down in Louisiana I got nothin? left to lose 
Down in Louisiana I got nothin? left to lose 
Now I'm goin to Angola with these Cane River blues
