Toby Keith Lyrics

New Orleans Lyrics

He was 25 she was 28
He was homegrown country, she'd just pulled off the interstate
She bought a Dr. Pepper, ten dollars worth of gas
She was Obviously lost but too afraid to ask directions
So he offered her a smile and a stick of beech nut gum
He said where are you headed to girl, where are you coming from
She said

New Orleans but that's another story
New Orleans that's another time
That's another town, that's another life

First she stayed a day then she stayed a week
Couple of months later they were living on his parents street
He worked the station and she worked the store
And then they had a baby
And then they had one more little Jesse
When she dropped the kids off at the mothers day out
All the ladies had their questions
And knew not to ask about

Repeat Chorus

Wednesday night supper at the first Baptist Church
Stranger standing in the door way
As they're passing out the dessert
He said go on pack your bags
Cause I'm here to take you home
I'm going back to Louisiana
And woman I ain't gonna go without you
There's a few defining moments in every persons life
When you know what you've done wrong
And you know what you've done right
And before the congregation and her husband and her kids
She says "how dare you even speak to me
After everything you did"... in

Repeat Chorus
