New Orleans Lyrics

(Bob DiPiero - Mark D. Sanders - Steve Seskin)
© '99 Tree Publishing, BMI / Cross Keys Publishing, ASCAP /
Sony ATV Tunes, ASCAP / MCA Music, ASCAP

He was twenty-five she was twenty-eight
He was homegrown and she'd just pulled off the interstate
She bought a Dr Pepper ten dollars worth of gas
She was obviously lost but too afraid to ask directions

So he offered her a smile and a stick of beech nut gum
He said where you headed to girl where you coming from

She said New Orleans but that's another story
New Orleans that's another time that's another town that's another life

First she stayed a day then she stayed a week
Couple of months later they were living on his parents street
He worked the station and she worked the store
And then they had a baby and then they had one more little Jesse

When she dropped the kids off at the mothers day out
All the ladies had their questions and knew not to ask about

New Orleans but that's another story...
[ guitar ]
Wednesday night supper at the first Baptist Church
Stranger standing in the door way as they're passing out the dessert
He said go on pack your bags I'm here to take you home
I'm going back to Louisiana and woman I ain't gonna go without you

There's a few defining moments in every persons life
When you know what you've done wrong and you know what you've done right
And before the congregation and her husband and her kids
She says how dare you even speak to me after everything you did in

And New Orleans that's another story...
New Orleans that's another story...
