Lyrics

The Place They Call New Orleans

I went down to New Orleans to see the city
There's a story there to tell
The boys are lean the girls are pretty
Like a heaven just trapped in total hell
And you can find yourself or lose yourself
And sin on every sin that you can find
Cos, theres no place like
The Place They Call New Orleans
To leave it all behind

I walked into a bar down by the quarter
Two boys was singin' up the place
And that resurrection Spirit was upon me
And I drank until I almost lost my face
And damned if that ole' barber chair attacked me
My head went back this far and then I smiled
Cos there's no place like
The Place They Call New Orleans
To leave it all behind

I saw Marie Laveau last night on Bourbon Street
She put a spell on me I can't explain
She said "why don't we go and paint a little pleasure,
Across a heart thats seen an awful lot of pain
And you can find yourself or lose yourself
And sin on every sin that you can find
Cos theres no place like The Place They Call New Orleans
To leave it all behind
