Coláiste Lurgan (TG Lurgan), the Irish language summer school, released a rollicking cover of Dennis Linde’s “Callin’ Baton Rouge,” the country love song made famous by Garth Brooks. The track features the musical calling cards of both Celtic music and American country: strong accordions, fiddle and banjos, though the language school interpreted the lyrics into Gaeilge, the Irish language.
“Callin’ Baton Rouge” is a country music song written by Dennis Linde. It was originally recorded by The Oak Ridge Boys on their 1978 album Room Service, and was later covered by New Grass Revival on their 1989 album Friday Night in America, and more famously by Garth Brooks on his 1993 album In Pieces. Brooks’ rendition, the fifth single from the album, reached a peak of number two on the U.S. country singles charts in 1994.Do you have any further information about this song?

I spent last night with a girl in Louisiana.
I’m far away, she’s still in my head.
Such beauty I never saw before.
Such beauty I’ll never see again.
Oh, Baton Rouge.
Early morning, I’m on my way
And at night she’s in my dreams.
But I’m out of town and out of sorts.
Without my girl the heartbreak comes.
Oh Baton Rouge.
Operators here and there,
oh send my love to Baton Rouge.
Hurry up. Life is short.
Talkin’ with my girl. Heck nothin’s finer.
Oh Samantha, my treasure.
Oh wait for me a while.
It won’t be long now
Until I’m with you forever.
But until then, remember me,
Oh my heart’s treasure.
Oh. oh, oh, Baton Rouge.
