Joan Jett – New Orleans lyrics

(Guida/Rovstar)

I said a hey hey hey yeah
I said a hey hey hey yeah
C'mon everybody take a trip with me

Way down to Mississippi down to New Orleans
Where the honeysuckle's bloomin' on the honeysuckle vine
And love is bloomin' there all the time every southern belle
Is a Mississippi Queen down the Mississippi down in New Orleans oww

I said a hey hey hey yeah
I said a hey hey hey yeah
Well c'mon take a stroll down on Basin street
An' listen to the music with the Dixieland beat
Where the magnolia blossoms they fill the air
And if you ain't been to heaven then you ain't been there
You got french moss hanging from a big oak tree
Down the Mississippi down to New Orleans

I said a hey hey hey yeah I said a look out child yeah yeah yeah
C'mon everybody take a trip with me

Way down to Mississippi down to New Orleans
Where the honeysuckle's bloomin' on the honeysuckle vine
And love is bloomin' there all the time every southern belle
Is a Mississippi Queen down the Mississippi down in New Orleans oww

I said a hey hey hey yeah I said a look out child yeah yeah yeah
C'mon everybody take a trip with me
