  • Lyrics: Well I was born in the great state of Ohio And I made my way down to that Louisiana Bayou I did things that in another town I might regret But I fit right into New Orleans brother you can bet I went down to the big, muddy Mississippi River I met a woman who was a hustler and a giver I heard gospel music comin’ from a big ol’ tent But there was something about that town that made me hell bent ‘Cause I behaved like it was a Mardi Gras day And I wish I didn’t live a thousand miles away Let’s go back (let’s go back) To the Big Easy (to the Big Easy) There’s no place like the Big Easy I had soft shell crab in the morning for my breakfast I had barbequed oysters and beer in the afternoon Five days at the New Orleans Jazz Fest It took its toll on me and I paid it until the end of June Well I felt like I was somebody else I took all my worries and I put them on the shelf Well I behaved in a Mardi Gras’ way I wish I didn’t live a thousand miles away Cause I felt like I was somebody else I took all my worries and I put them on the shelf I put them on the shelf There’s no place I’m on my way There’s no place to like Big Easy
