I'm stuck here down
In the old quarter town
Where everything I held close
Could not be found

You step off that plane
You'll forget your own name
Your broken words shall be
Muffled by the monsoon rains
A nice man will take you
To the hotel you believe you're staying in
The city smoke will choke you
And the driver he'll joke, too
'Bout all the extra money you just gave him

It's all going down
In the old quarter town
Where everything old and dear is lost
All that's new to fear is found
It's all going down
In the old quarter town

This place is as crazy as love
Or a bride and groom
Who wish to be wed
For some lord above
You feel so green in a world
Before you've never been
Any old fellow could take you
On a ride right now

It's all going down
In the old quarter town
Where everything old and dear is lost
All that's new to fear is found
It's all going down
In the old quarter town

I'm fallen down
In the old quarter town
Weak and weary
Drifting homeward bound
See, I'm stuck here down
In the old quarter town
Where everything I held close
Could not be found
