Leaving New Orleans - Jordan Davis

I'll miss the quarter, the magnolias
And the Pontchartrain
And the french market on a Saturday
I'll miss the feel of this place
I'll miss the bayou sunrise
The Mardi Gras and the second lines
Bourbon jazz, sidewalk kids
With bottlecap taps dancing for tips

But I'm leaving New Orleans
There's too much of you in this town
Your memories like moss in the trees
Every corner it's just hanging around
Well the Big Easy ain't so easy
Hard to say it but baby come morning
I'll be rolling like the Mississippi
Leaving New Orleans

Well I like highways so maybe LA
Is the place for me
If I point these wheels
T'wards a Hollywood sign
All those miles can clear my mind
Well I can watch a horse race
On some blue grass
Where the bourbon's made
Get some rays in the sunshine state
Hit Seattle if I need a little rain

But I'm leaving New Orleans
There's too much of you in this town
Your memories like moss in the trees
Every corner it's just hanging around
Well the Big Easy ain't so easy
Hard to say it but baby come morning
I'll be rolling like the Mississippi
Leaving New Orleans

I guess our good times have rolled away
Well, laissez les bons temps rouler

Leaving New Orleans
There's too much of you in this town
Your memories like moss in the trees
Every corner it's just hanging around
Well the Big Easy ain't so easy
Hard to say it but baby come morning

Yeah I'm leaving New Orleans
There's too much of you in this town
Your memories like moss in the trees
Every corner it's just hanging around
Well the Big Easy ain't so easy
Hard to say it but baby come morning
I'll be rolling like the Mississippi
Leaving New Orleans

Yeah I'm leaving New Orleans
Goodbye New Orleans
I'm leaving New Orleans
