"New Orleans" as written by and Darren Jay/mcelyea Ashba....
Stepped off the bus, suitcase in my hands
Headin' down to Espanade
Took no time to find my friends
Laughed and drinkin' in the rain

You got more glitter and a lot more glam
Than Hollywood has its fame
And holdin' you is the best damn thing
No one's ever takin' that away

I said
Hey missus, won't you stand by me, now?
Give me a little time?
Hey missus, won't you stand by me, now?
Show me how to turn it upside down?

I said
I fell in love down in New Orleans
And I found myself inside
I fell in love down in New Orleans
When you showed me all those lives
Alright

Black on black, I was dressed to thrill
I made my way down the line
Hearts are poundin', and Elvis singin'
You were always on my mind

Well, darlin' now don't forget
I'll always love your style
Well, darlin', now don't forget
I'll always love your smile

I said
Hey missus, won't you stand by me, now?
Give me a little time?
Hey missus, won't you stand by me, now?
Show me how to turn it upside down?

I said
I fell in love down in New Orleans
And I found myself inside
I fell in love down in New Orleans
When you showed me all those lives

I fell in love down in New Orleans
And I found myself inside
I fell in love down in New Orleans
When you showed me all those lives

I fell in love down in New Orleans
And I found myself inside
I fell in love down in New Orleans
When you showed me all those lives

I fell in love down in New Orleans
And I found myself inside
Darlin', darlin', darlin', darlin',
You showed me all those lives
