From the Royal Street Playlist (and Weekly Winners)

Happy Sunday! Sharing my favorite song right now…Zachary Richard’s been getting heavy play as I’ve been writing (now revising) the third book in the Sentinels of New Orleans series, ELYSIAN FIELDS. This is a Cajun song called “Travailler C’est Trop Dur.” It’s been recorded by a ton of artists, but Zack’s always the best!

Rough translation: Working is too hard and stealing isn’t pretty. Asking for charity is something I cannot do. 
Each day that I live, they ask me on what do you survive. I say I live on love and I hope to live long. I take my fiddle and I grab the bow. I play my old waltz to make my friends dance. You know, dear friends, that life is too short to live in sorrow. Let us dance tonight…(chorus)…I play music just about every night, going all around singing in “whiskey bars.” Sometimes, you know, I could give up and go home, but I have come this evening for the pleasure of singing.”
