Don Williams performs "Louisiana Saturday Night"

"Louisiana Saturday Night" is a song written by Bob McDill and recorded by American country music artist Mel McDaniel. It was released in March 1981 as the third single from McDaniel's 1980 album, I'm Countryfied. The song was originally sung by Don Williams. The song is often mistakenly attributed to popular country music bands Alabama (band) and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.Adding to the confusion, Tom T. Hall wrote an earlier, unrelated song by the same name. Hall's "Louisiana Saturday Night" was recorded by Mamou, Louisiana's Jimmy C. Newman in 1967.


Probably it was a Dolly Parton & Doug Kershaw appearance on the "Louisiana Saturday Night on Dolly Show" in 1987 that made this simple country song a "must dance" title. Lately this song has become popular in the USA and in many other countries as a "country line dance".

Don Williams - Louisiana Saturday Night Lyrics


Waiting in the front yard sitting on a log

Single shot rifle and a one-eyed dog

Yonder come my kin folk in the moonlight

Louisiana Saturday night

Hey you get down the fiddle and you get down the bow

Kick off your shoes and throw 'em on the floor

Dance in the kitchen 'til the morning light

Louisiana Saturday night

My brother Bill and my other brother Jack

Belly full of beer and a possum in the sack

Fifteen kids in the front porch light

Louisiana Saturday night

When the kin folks leave and the kids get fed

Me and my woman gonna sneak of to bed

Have a little fun when we turn off the light

Louisiana Saturday night
