"New Orleans" as written by and William Charles Anderson....
Wake up
I'll run up to the window
She's standing on a corner
Emotions made her follow
I see her in her red shoes
I slip out of the front door
And she starts up her car

She drives
We're heading for the city
[?]
That's pulsing in her heartbeat
I'm feeling watching over her
As she turns on the Canal street
She's wide awake again

She swears it's in the air, you just have to believe
Yes she comes alive down in New Orleans

We're runnin' by the river
The city lights are blazing
She looks like she could fly off
Like gravity is failling
Somewhere in the distance
A marching band is playing
She's wide awake again

She swears it's in the air, you just have to believe
Yes she comes alive down in New Orleans
And something in her eyes that I've never seen
When she says to me
I'm wide awake again
There's magic in the night down in New Orleans

Take me down to the water
Take me down to the water (of New Orleans)
Take me down to the water
No I never have figured out
Just a maze I've never known
And suddenly it's making sense
When she shows me all
The rozes in the sidewalk
Like angels at her feet
And they're breaking through the pavement
To lie her away through New Orleans
Through New Orleans

She swears it's in the air, you just have to believe
Yes she comes alive down in New Orleans
And something in her eyes that I've never seen
When she says to me
I'm wide awake again
There's magic in the night down in New Orleans

Take me down to the water
Take me down to the water (of New Orleans)
Take me down to the water
Take me down to the water
Take me down to the water (of New Orleans)
Take me down to the water
