New Orleans

I grew up in New Orleans

when I was seventeen

but that was... so long ago

I'm going back some day

come what may... before I grow old

 

I'll never forget the City that Care Forgot

where the streets are bent

and the nights are hot

 

I played jazz in the street

drank Dixie til I couldn't stand

form women... I learned to be a man

 

New Orleans waits for no man

she don't care... but she'll always be there

 

I'll never forget the City that Care Forgot

where the streets are bent

and the nights are hot
