Oh, promet-moi cher ‘tit cœur
De jamais m'avoir donnerComme t'as pris, oui, ton coeurTu m’as pris d’la maison, chèr ‘tit cœurTes bonnes paroles qui m’a faitM’en aller (z) avec toi.

Being a huge fan of Joe Falcon's music, he reworked Joe's "Poche Town" into what he called the "Waltz of Regret" (#648). Sadly, Khoury's session notes were nonexistent. Identifying Lawrence's band during the Khoury sessions is difficult. It possibly featured Al Forman on guitar, possibly Demux Comeaux on guitar, possibly U.J. Meaux on fiddle, and possibly either Lawrence Trahan, Bhuel "Huffy" Hoffpauir or Shelton Manuel on drums.
Oh, promise me, dear, little sweetheart,
Never have given to me,How you've taken, yes, your heart.You took me from home, dear little sweetheart,Your good word which made me,Go away with you.
