I Woke Up In New Orleans Songtext

I couldn't out drink anyone for nothing
but I'd act like it till I puked or passed out
Ohhh most nights I could get away with something
these days I don't seem to stand so proud

She asked me why can't I just stop drinking
Come on babe, we both know it's too late
ohhh for either one of us to still be thinking
that I could live my life some other way

I woke up in New Orleans
angry at the world and all alone
I want you to know darling
I love you and I want to come back home

With less than graceful ladies I've said we'll see
I've drank with scoundrels, tramps and god damn fools
Ohhh but I don't think they'd much care if it kills me
Been living life the man just passing through

The last few years were stitched with floss and pipe dreams
a quilt of poor intentions raveled out
Ohhh but it was you who took me in and saved me
Seems I've paid you back with slack and broken vows

I woke up in New Orleans
angry at the world and all alone
I want you to know darling
I love you and I want to come back home

I know it should have been easy
it's too late to change the path I chose
this might not count for nothing
I just wanted you to know

I woke up in New Orleans
angry at the world and all alone
But I want you to know darling
I love you and I want to come back home
I love you and I want to come back home
