New Orleans

This song is by Rancid and appears on the album Let the Dominoes Fall (2009).

Well I went south with a case of survival
To amend my heart that's paper thin
You see, I felt her words and her images filed
I'm gonna carry my heart to New Orleans

I have no home to go, so I wander a while
From coast to coast, from sin to sin
From the coldest shores to the warmest islands
Been around the world, back to New Orleans

Well she's got pride like a million lions
She's got a scar on her velvet face
She's got a smile like a newborn child
She's got a walk, a stoic grace

I never slept that night until my arrival
I romanticized a long embrace
You see, I lost my tongue and burned my Bible
But made it back home to New Orleans

Well she's got pride like a million lions
She's got a scar on her velvet face
She's got a smile like a newborn child
She's got a walk, a stoic grace

Well I held my breath and I swam for miles
When all was lost and hell took place
You see, it rained all night and the city, she flooded
It rained all night in New Orleans

Yeah, it rained all night in New Orleans
