Lyrics

Miss New Orleans
Copyright 2010
Dan Pelletier

Find a bright parade and get behind it, buy the girl a drink she won’t mind it
But don’t go looking for happiness here, you won’t find it
Lord I miss, Miss New Orleans

Fix yourself a drink a new solution, equal parts of faith and absolut-ion
While you break every New Year’s resolution
Lord I miss, Miss New Orleans

Savor every corner where you can find some quiet, you can’t make love here, but you can buy it
You never know just what you love until you try it
Lord I miss, Miss New Orleans

What I never had before maybe this is it, what I was looking for, how can I miss it
When they get this place fixed up, I think I’ll visit
Lord I miss, Miss New Orleans
(instrumental)

There’s a girl with half her clothes, there’s this flame that grows higher and higher
There’s no sense just throwing fat onto that fire
Lord I miss, Miss New Orleans

It took a hurricane to capsize her, she’s been washed clean, she’s a whole lot wiser
Someone went to great pains to baptize her
Lord I miss, Miss New Orleans
Lord I miss, Miss New Orleans
Lord I miss, Miss New Orleans
