I took a walk in a crowded town
Where if you breathe too deeply
You're likely to drown
But the air's not as thick as the sin I found
In New Orleans.

Rainbow necks on drunken girls
Who'd sell their souls for a string of pearls
I hope there's no place in the world
Like New Orleans

New Orleans is a spooky place
You can see the devil smiling in every face
Voodoo babies put their pins in place
In New Orleans

I took a walk in a crowded town
I saw a dark boy get beaten down
I watched him turn to a reddish brown
In New Orleans

I held his hand and I sang my song
I was lying when I told him there was nothing wrong
I won't be back for sometime long
Not in New Orleans

New Orleans is a spooky place
You can see the devil smiling in every face
Voodoo babies put their pins in place
In New Orleans
