John Lee Hooker – Canal Street Blues lyrics

Tell me down in New Orleans
Whiskey's streamin' just like wine
Tell me down in New Orleans
Whiskey's streamin' just like wine
Lord, my baby, she down there
Wonders my baby, she gone wild

They tell me Canal Street
Is the longest street in town
Tell me Canal Street
Is the longest street in town
Yes, you ride all day long
You still on Canal Street, yes, yes

Then they tell me again, people
Lord, have mercy, it's the widest street in town
Then they tell me again
It's the widest street in town
Lord, I just gonna keep on ridin'
Keep on, down in New Orleans
