by the old bayou

You've never seen
You've never seen those Cupid doll queens
Like they got 'em in New Orleans
And, oh, they love you like no one
all about scat
He's the father of it all as a matter of fact
Louis was a legend in New Orleans
And the Louisiana Dixieland scene 
He made a decision
and the river of mud

[Chorus]
Let me know!where I can go to save my soul?
Let me know!where I can go to save my soul?

New Orleans new Orleans
It's where
and baby
I'm walking dead
Oh you were a vampire and baby
I'm walking dead

I got the ways and means
To New Orleans I'm going
Down by the river
Where
and baby
I'm walking dead
O you were a vampire and baby
I'm walking dead

[Chorus]
I got the ways and means
To New Orleans I'm going
Down by
and baby
I'm walking dead
O you were a vampire and baby
I'm walking dead

I got the ways and means
to New Orleans I'm going
down by the river
where
Seen the arrow on the doorpost
Saying, "This land is condemned
All the way from New Orleans
To Jerusalem."
I traveled through East Texas
Where
Seen the arrow on the doorpost
Saying, "This land is condemned
All the way from New Orleans
To Jerusalem."
I traveled through East Texas
Where
assassin's work was done
But bells in hands bells were only there for the ringing
And we were bringing bullets for the new-born king
and sightless, half-wit boy 

But Lewis was my name though I could not say it 
I was born and raised in New Orleans 
My spirit was wild, so I let the river
Seen the arrow on the door post
Saying, "This land is condemned"
All the way
From New Orleans to Jerusalem

I traveled through East Texas
Where many
The dixie landers sure are proud of it 
They call it jazz 
What it has 
That's a plenty for me! 

Gonna head on down to New Orleans 
Bassin street
shouted on chain gangs
Pain they felt, but it helped them to maintain
Scott Joplin's rags, Bessie Smith's blues

St. Louis blues, they were all the news
alright

We were Jesus save me, blue jean baby
Born in the USA
Trailer park truck stop, faded little map dots
New York to LA
We were teenage dreamin’, front
The dixie landers sure are proud of it 
They call it jazz 
What it has 
That's a plenty for me! 

Gonna head on down to New Orleans 
Bassin street
the sky, and riverboats floatin' by,
On their way to New Orleans;
I've bowed with people standin' tall, with their backs pushed up
Against the wall,
Getting'
if I die, catch me at the funeral.
I'll fly away, oh glory,
With a mic in my hand, to a land where only God knows me,
And the angels write raps
alright

We were Jesus save me, blue jean baby
Born in the USA
Trailer park truck stop, faded little map dots
New York to LA
We were teenage dreamin’, front
Baltimore
'Cause New York was too darn fast
He sometimes went down to Washington
Just to view our nation's past

He never ate his vegetables
'Cause they were
There's a woman in New Orleans
Said to love me she was born
But that was Friday payday
By Sunday she was gone
So I drove on down to Texas
Where
Seen the arrow on the doorpost
Saying, "This land is condemned
All the way from New Orleans
To Jerusalem."
I traveled through East Texas
Where
Seen the arrow on the doorpost
Saying, "This land is condemned
All the way from New Orleans
To Jerusalem."
I traveled through East Texas
Where
to everybody and
Came across the oceans in chains and shame
Easing the pain, and it was without name
Until some men in New Orleans on Rampart Street
Put out
adieu to your eyes as blue as the water in the bay
And to big Jim Dwyer the man of war
Who was often heard to say
I'm a free born man of the USA
I'm
the games you play
And you make each new day
It feels so funny in your mummy's tummy
Before you get born into

The world for to carry on
Remember young
