The lyrics evoke the people and the elements that make up the Garonne. He sings “My Mississippi is a Garonne, with the brown hue of an autumn leaf …”, “The blood of vines and that of men …”. The singer-songwriter is also a guitarist and saxophonist.

The clip was shot along the Garonne, to the estuary. We can see the palus and a plaice of Virelade. The Langoirannais will recognize the bridge and the vines of the village. We can also see the course of the Ciron in Pujols-sur-Ciron.
