French Quarter - Delta Spirit

french quarter, quarter to four, the town is empty like a nuclear war, the levee broke on Pontchartrain, I'm feelin' blue like John Coltrane, it's fine baby, carpet bagger tried to fix my house, low baller tried to put me out, at least I got my gospel stomp, my house fell into the swamp, I need somebody to help me out, I've lost it all but I've got my health, you oughta know, they've been kicking me around and I don't want to lose my own home, it ain't no joke, I was raised in this town, the south is in my blood, it's in the mud, I'm clearing out my home and tearing it all down to the stud, all this love is what's fixing my house, I ain't no refugee, I'm a person can't you see, Lord I'm humbled from what I've seen, you are the one who will build me up, I've lost it all but I've got your help, you oughta know, I've lost everything, but I still have my soul and my hope, I believe in you, you oughta know, I've been kicked around, but no way I'm gonna give up my home, it ain't no joke, I was born in this town, the south is in my blood, it's in the mud, I've been clearing out my home and ripping everything down to the stud, all this love is gonna fix up my house.
