Way Down Yonder To New Orleans Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

WAY DOWN YONDER IN NEW ORLEANS
WRITERS HENRY CREAMER, J. TURNER LAYTON

Well, way down yonder in New Orleans in the land of the dreamy scenes There's a garden of Eden, ah-you know what I mean Yeah, Creole babies with flashin' eyes softly whisper with tender sighs And then you stop! Oh won't you give your lady fair a little smile? And then you stop! You bet your life you'll linger there a little while Yeah, there is heaven right here on earth with those beautiful queens Yeah, way down yonder in New Orleans Whoo! instrumental break Way down yonder in New Orleans, whoo!, in the land of the dreamy scenes There's a garden of Eden, you know what I mean Well, Creole babies with flashin' eyes softly whisper with tender sighs And then you stop! Oh won't you give your lady fair a little smile? And then you stop! You bet your life you'll linger there a little while Yeah, there is heaven right here on earth with those beautiful queens Well, way down yonder in New Orleans Yeah! whoo! instrumental to end
