lyrics

Orleans is falling
To the sea from which it came
Bourbon is flowing
With clowns in this old parade
Oh hear the sound
A poor busker’s made her own
Crawfish is boiling
In the driveways down Carollton
Oh take me back to New Orleans
I’ve had a feeling this was once home
Sometime not long ago
In a past life for this west coast boy
Orleans is falling
To the sea from which it came
Lost souls are wandering
Mixed in the masquerade
Oh hear the sounds
A young brass band’s made its own
Catfish are jumping
By the shores of Ponchartrain
Oh take me back to New Orleans
I’ve had a feeling this was once home
Sometime not long ago
In a past life for this west coast boy
I still see myself out there
Out on the porch in the rain
With a beer and a pile of shrimp
And with my guitar in hand
I’d sing my heart out to the night
Yeah I still see myself out there in that warm pouring rain
Sitting out with smile and I knew right then where I was
I thought I was home, yeah I felt I was home, oh I knew I was home
Oh take me back to New Orleans
I’ve had a feeling this was once home
Sometime not long ago
In a past life for this west coast boy
