​New Orleans

This song is by Deadman.

I cried when I heard about New Orleans
I cried when I heard about New Orleans
So much destruction the likes you've never seen
And you just want to go back to how she used to be

The streets are soaked and only darkness down in New Orleans
The streets are soaked and only darkness down in New Orleans
And it's bringing out the demons you see
It turns refugees into thieves

I wept for a man who had lost his wife
I wept for a man who had lost his wife
He said he tried to hold on to save her life
But the water was too strong that she slipped away into the night

When the people saw don down in New Orleans
When the people saw don down in New Orleans
The river ran over the homes of men
And the feelings of conscience settle in

It's been a while since I last saw New Orleans
It's been a while since I last saw New Orleans
And I regret that she'll be forever changed
She's wounded and never be the same

I cried when I heard about New Orleans
I cried when I heard about New Orleans
So much destruction the likes you've never seen
Under years that just began to sing

And you just want to get back to New Orleans
I hope we can get back to New Orleans
