Yeah, catin, comment j'vas faire,
Ton popa veut pas me voir chez toi,
Ta moman, tu connais, elle est contre moi,
Quel espoir,moi j'peux avoir, aussi longtemps....

Austin and his band toured the U.S. over the years and were recognized with several awards. In 1973, Austin was even invited to perform and entertain fans in Washington, D.C. at the Smithsonian Festival in American Folk Life. He returned for that same festival in 1976 for the bi-centennial celebration. In 1980, the Louisiana Freedom Festival in Elton, Louisiana, presented Austin an award in appreciation for 50 years of contribution to and promotion of Cajun music.
Yeah, little doll, how I'm gonna do this?
Your poppa doesn't want to see me at his home,
Your momma, you know, she is against me,
What hope can I have, for so long?...
