TITLE BELLE LOUISIANE
HISTORY The history of this beautiful song by Acadian Zachary Richard is not known. We would love to hear from someone about how this song was created by Zachary.
INTERPRETATION The recurring theme in this song is, 'Beautiful Louisiana, I sing my heart for you'. In the first verse, it mentions Louisiana as the land of the 'Cadiens, so rich and so generous'. '...Beautiful Louisiana, open your arms and hug your dear child'. In the second verse... "I love your bayous, your prairies and your forests and the waves at the edges of your good earth... I love your farmers who work so hard and who are so welcoming." The final verses..."Regardless where life will take me, I will always keep you in my heart."  What beautiful words and thoughts by Zachary Richard... from a very ancient Acadien family.

You are listening to only a short segment of the song as recorded by the very young Cajun bande, La Bande Feufollet with Brittany Polaski singing lead. Chris Stafford is singing harmony. Please support our Acadian and Cajun musicians by purchasing their music. In this case, you may purchase this CD from the band directly at www.feufollet.net, or from other sources such as CD Universe or Amazon.com.

LYRICS Belle Louisiane, je chante mon coeur pour toi
Terre des Cadiens, si riche et généreuse
Belle Louisiane, je chante mon coeur pour toi
Ouvre tes bras et serre ton cher enfant.

J'aime tes bayous, tes prairies et tes bois
Les Avoyelles au bout de la terre bonne
Les habitants vaillants et acceuillants
Belle Louisiane, je chante mon coeur pour toi.

N'importe où la vie va m'emmener
c'est dans mon coeur que je te garderai
Belle Louisiane, je chante mon coeur pour toi
Ouvre tes bras et serre ton cher enfant. (repeat)

Fin.
