Down In New Orleans Lyrics – Buddy Brown

I’ve got a real wild hair
It’s bound to take me there
To the place I go when I get wild
And I’ve got 1/2 a mind
To drive to New Orleans and kill some time
Meet a Cajun girl I can’t understand

And if that whiskey’s at the bar
And a refill ain’t too far
I’ll be on cloud 9 just after 10
Buying drinks for everyone
And a good night has begun
Everyone will love me instantly
When I’m down in New Orleans
Down in New Orleans

Somebody told me if I wanna do it right
The french quarter’s getting crazy tonight
Nobody’s ever seen it quite this way
So I grab my drink and I go for a stroll
Where I’m headed, man, nobody knows
I’ll probably end up back at the same old place

And if that whiskey’s at the bar
And a refill ain’t too far
I’ll be on cloud 9 just after 10
Buying drinks for everyone
And a good night has begun
Everyone will love me instantly
When I’m down in New Orleans
Down in New Orleans

Manger, grab a plate and eat some Cajun chicken
Shrimp and some gumbo, come and see what you’re missing
Take a load off, man then you’re living down in New Orleans
Manger, grab a plate and eat some Cajun chicken
Shrimp and some gumbo, come and see what you’re missing
Take a load off, man then you’re living down in New Orleans

And if that whiskey’s at the bar
And a refill ain’t too far
I’ll be on cloud 9 just after 10
Buying drinks for everyone
And a good night has begun
Everyone will love me instantly
When I’m down and drinking
Whiskey’s at the bar
And a refill ain’t too far
I’ll be on cloud 9 just after 10
Buying drinks for everyone
And a good night has begun
Everyone will love me instantly
When I’m down in New Orleans
When I’m down in New Orleans, ooh
