Bottom line: The woman cut outta town and left the singer there in Big Mamou (either the town, literally, or the prairie in that area -- we are talkin' Louisiana, of course). She left him for another man. An outsider, perhaps? Some rich guy who came to town to make a bid on local rice, impressin' her as he smoked a Cuban cigar and knockin back Bourbon in the Hotel Cazan bar? The singer misses her and wants her back. But the song is usually played up-beat and danceable, so few folks even pick up on the lyrics.
