lyrics

Bourbon Street

By Steve Burdette & Randy Bishop (ASCAP) ©2015, Rokit Music


I bought a new house where I could hang around
Then I watched it slip away into a hole in the ground
I should’ve spent my money on a pleasure cruise
Instead I’m headin’ down to Bourbon Street to hear me some blues

Well I stumbled down to Mama’s Place to find me a girl
I paid her fifty dollars just to give me a whirl
I bought her some beads and a fancy scarf
But she knocked me in the head and left me here in the dark

CHORUS:
I was on shaky, shaky, shaky ground
Couldn’t hang around
But there are people to meet
And music’s oh so sweet
Down here on Bourbon Street

BRIDGE:
There’s a party in the street
The crowd’s stompin’ to the beat
A blues band is crankin’
Everybody’s dancin’
You can really feel the heat

I need to find a voodoo shop that sells witches’ brew
To erase all of my troubles so I won’t have a clue
Then I’ll party down at Mardi Gras and drink lots of booze
Maybe try my hand at gamblin’ ‘cause I’ve got nothin’ to lose

CHORUS II
I’m here on shaky, shaky, shaky ground
And I shouldn’t hang around
But there are people to meet
And music’s oh so sweet
Down here on Bourbon Street
