Song Description

Man recounts story of Hurricane Katrina, yearning for the music that will sustain him through difficult times. By the end of the song, he is inspired to bring the music back.

Story Behind the Song

Watching my friends and family try to rebuild their lives after huge losses sustained due to Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent levee break and flood. Music is a great comfort, especially in cities like New Orleans.

Lyrics

Some Times

Verse 1
Storm came and went; My city?s spent
Sometimes you don?t choose
Hell breaks loose and
Sticks you with the blues.
Levee broke; lost my folk
Sometimes life ain?t fair
Sun comes up and
All you got?s your underwear.
Chorus:
I need some jazz
I want some soul
I gotta have ?. my rock and bowl
But when nothin?s all you got
And your options start to rot, you find it?s true
Sometimes all you got in life is you.

Verse 2
Too much rain, too much pain
Sometimes you just cry
You know the what, but now you want the why
Lost my shirt, Death?s a flirt
Sometimes luck just quits.
The power?s gone and all you got is instant grits.
Chorus

Bridge
Is this goodbye for ever
To the faubourg and my friends
Did the wildKat drown our spirits
Or will the good times roll again?

Verse 3
Pick a beat; tap my feet
Sometimes there?s no choice
Music?s gone and so you gotta find your voice.
Down not out, just think about
Good times we?ll find ahead.
Too much to do to lie around and cry in bed.

Final Chorus
I?ll play some jazz
I?ll find my soul.
And soon I?ll have my rock and bowl.
Cause when nothin?s all you got
And your past is shot, you may find that it?s true
Sometimes all you need in life is you.

But just know this, now you got me too
