Lyrics

It's a beautiful morning in New Orleans
The kind where you leave the door open
And you sit in the breeze
listening to the birds sing
You can't ask for a better morning city scene
But it's nothing like the old days
Nothing like that porch and a tin roof in the rain
Nothing like hearing you call my name
As I'd come run run run run run run running home

I miss the waterfall, the creeks and trees
I miss the friends and cousins who played with me
Yeah you could say I'm waiting here for something
'cause I got my thumb in the air and my heart on my sleeve as I sing

I'm trying to get back home where I started from
Trying to get back home where I started from
Trying to get back home where I started
I'm trying to get back home where I started from
Trying to get back home where I started from
Trying to get back, get back home

And some my say I'm wasting time
Time is a wasteland, it's true
But I'd agree this month is the most cruel
for it's always go go go go go go go
And when we're walking down that parish road
past the cemetery and the great unknown
you will know and I'll know that
It's good to be home

I'm trying to get back home where I started from
Trying to get back home where I started from
Trying to get back home where I started
I'm trying to get back home where I started from
Trying to get back home where I started from
Trying to get back, get back home
