I Woke Up In New Orleans Lyrics

I couldn't out drink anyone for nothing
But I'd act like it 'til I puked or passed out
Oh most nights I could get away with something
These days I don't seem to stand so proud

She asked me why can't I just stop drinking
Come on babe, we both know it's too late
Oh for either one of us to still be thinking
That I could live my life some other way

I woke up in New Orleans
Angry at the world and all alone
I want you to know darling
I love you and I want to come back home

It was less than graceful ladies I've said we'll see
I've drank with scoundrels, tramps and god damn fools
Oh but I don't think that much care if it kills me
Living life the mans just passing through

The last few years were stitched with floss and pipe dreams
A quilt of poor intentions raveled out
Oh but it was you who took me in and saved me
It seems I've paid you back with slack and broken vows

And I woke up in New Orleans
Angry at the world and all alone
I want you to know darling
I love you and I want to come back home

I know it should have been easy
Its too late to change the path I chose
This might not count for nothing
Just want you to know

I woke up in New Orleans
Angry at the world and all alone
I want you to know darling
I love you and I want to come back home
I love you and I want to come back home
