Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans?

Our good friends in Thibodaux, Louisiana weathered Katrina at home. They’re without power and had wind damage, but they’re okay, thank God. Grand Isle, that beautiful seashore we enjoyed together, hasn’t fared so well, though. And we know the people in New Orleans are hurting.


Howie and I watch the news and still can’t believe the devastation in New Orleans. Our prayers are with everyone down there, and all those going to help.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO MISS NEW ORLEANS
(Louis Alter / Eddie DeLange)
Listen to instrumental version

Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
And miss it each night and day
I know I’m not wrong, the feeling’s getting stronger
The longer I stay away

Miss the moss-covered vines, tall sugar pines
Where mockingbirds used to sing
I’d love to see that old lazy Mississippi
Hurrying into Spring

The moonlight on the bayou
A Creole tune that fills the air
I dream about magnolias in bloom
And I’m wishin I was there

Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
When that’s where you left your heart
And there’s one thing more, I miss the one I care for
More than I miss New Orleans
