lyrics

Been looking for you like some smoke ring clue
The pavement was broken, an old tree fell down
The music that played was too loud
What do you mean?
What did you see?

You think of then and wish for the same
It can't be like then, this ain't New Orleans rain
New Orleans Drain

I heard it's bad, he's in the jailhouse now
Red eyed and crazy and feeling so old
Fucked up and hopeless with nowhere to go
What did he lose?
Not what he'd choose

You think of then and wish for the same
It can't be like then, this ain't New Orleans rain
New Orleans Drain

"One Night Only" at the barroom again
Trying to find a nice girl and meet him a friend
Remember we played in a band way back when?
What did he do?
What is the blues?

You think of then and wish for the same
It can't be like then, this ain't New Orleans rain
New Orleans Drain
