lyrics

New Orleans

I’ve been thinkin’ that I’d like to take a train
Down to New Orleans where the whiskey flows free
Down in New Orleans

Playin’ dixie-land jazz at the clubs
Find a cajun girl and fall in love
Down in New Orleans

And when I die,
tell the second line
to blow those horns toward the sky for me
I want St. Peter to know
to keep the gates open
I’ll be flyin’ in from New Orleans
Oh, from New Orleans

Complain about the weather all summer long
When the winter comes, wish the summer wasn’t gone
Down in New Orleans

Tip a hat and a glass to the souls that moved on
Find our comfort in a Sweet Emma song
Down in New Orleans

And when I die,
tell the second line
to blow those horns toward the sky for me
I want St. Peter to know
to keep the gates open
I’ll be flyin’ in from New Orleans
Oh, from New Orleans
