This city won't wash away
This city ever drown
Blood in the water and hell to pay
Sky tear open and pain rain down
Doesn't matter 'cause come what may
I ain't ever gonna leave this town
This city won't wash away
This city won't ever drown

Ain't the river or the wind to blame
Every around here knows
Nothin' holdin' back Ponchartrain
Except for a prayer and a promise's ghost
We just carry on diggin' our graves
In solid marble above the ground
Maybe our bones'll wash away
But this city won't ever drown

This city won't ever die
Just as long as her heart beats strong
Like a second line steppin' high'
Raisin' hell as we roll along
Gently to the Vieux Carre
Lower Nine, Central City, Uptown
Singin' Jacamo Fee-Nah-Nay
This city won't ever drown
Doesn't matter 'cause there ain't no way
I'm ever gonna leave this town
This city won't wash away
This city won't ever drown
