Nathan Abshire and Dewey Balfa Cajun Mardi Gras



Nathan Abshire and Dewey Balfa Cajun Mardi Gras

The Mardi Gras gather once a year1
To ask for charity
They gather once a year
All around the village

Captain, captain, carry your flag
Let's go visit our neighbors
Captain, captain, carry your flag
Let's go on the road

The Mardi Gras ask for the permission to enter
Of every master and every mistress
They ask for the permission to enter
With courtesy

Captain, captain, carry your flag
Let's go visit our neighbors
Captain, captain, carry your flag
Let's go on the road

Give us a little fat chicken
Yes, or a little rice
We invite you to come tonight
And eat some good gumbo

Captain, captain, carry your flag
Let's go visit our neighbors
Captain, captain, carry your flag
Let's go on the road

Would you receive these Mard Gras
This great bunch of big drunks
The Mardi Gras thank you very much
Of your good intentions

Captain, captain, carry your flag
Let's go visit our neighbors
Captain, captain, carry your flag
Let's go on the road

The Mardi Gras come from everywhere
To ask for charity
They gather from everywhere
But mostly from Big Mamou

with Dewey Balfa, Nathan Abshire and Carl Courville in Church Point, LA.
