Les Humphries Singers – New Orleans lyrics

New Orleans
Yip
Yip
New Orleans
Yip yip
Left my home in Texas bound for New Orleans.
New Orleans
Yip
Yip
New Orleans
Yip
Yip.
Left my home in Texas for New Orleans.

Ain't no doubt about it
Don't see no way round it

Left my girl in Maybeline and got on board the River Queen.
Should have faced the jury but I was in a hurry

Got on board the River Queen and headed down to New Orleans.

Happened to be on the River Boat Queen
River Boat Queen bound for New Orleans
Happened to be on the River Boat Queen
River Boat Queen
Bound for
New Orleans
Yip
Yip
New Orleans
Yip
Yip
Left my home in Texas bound for New Orleans
New Orleans
Yip
Yip
New Orleans
Yip
Yip.
Left my home in Texas for New Orleans.
I've left friends behind me
Although they still remind me

I was feelin' doggone mean
So headed down to New Orleans.
I've lost all my money and I don't think it's funny

I gambled on the River Queen headin' down to New Orleans
Happened to be on the River Boat Queen
. . .
Smokin'
Gamblin'
Drinkin' but when I started thinkin'

Somethin' that I should have seen never left for New Orlea
I got drunk one night and then she just picked a fight

Now I'm on the River Queen headin' down to New Orleans.
Happened to be on the River Boat Queen
. . .
