Lonnie Johnson – New Orleans Blues lyrics

Well, I’m goin’ back to New Orleans
Philadelphia ain’t the place for me
Well, I’m goin’ back to New Orleans
Philadelphia ain’t the place for me
‘Cause it's chicks don’t want no one good man
They want every man they see

Well, I’m goin’ back home
If I have to hitchhike all the way
Well, I’m goin’ back home
If I have to hitchhike all the way
That’s why I can make love by the moonlight
Lay in the shade all through the day

Creole baby's got big bright eyes
An’ coal black curly hair
Those Creole baby's got big bright eyes
Coal black curly hair
An’ they know how to love a man
That’s why I’m goin’ back there

Yes, I’m goin’ back to New Orleans
When I get home I’m goin’ to stay
Yes, I’m goin’ back to New Orleans
When I get home I’m goin’ to stay
Yes, I don’t have to worry ‘bout love
‘Cause I find good love each and every day
