Lyrics

Jewel Of The Delta:

On the banks of the Mississippi
The jewel of the delta shines
The jazz musicians play
And the gourmet critics dine
The trolley on St. Charles
Is rolling toward the zoo
Throw me something mister
Is shouted at the Krewe

To the land of sugarcane
There came a hurricane
Katrina nearly wiped the city out
Big Easy took a blow
But the city of Satchmo
Lost a round but is gonna win the bout

On the banks of the Mississippi
The jewel of the delta shines
The jazz musicians play
And the gourmet critics dine
The trolley on St. Charles
Is rolling toward the zoo
Throw me something mister
Is shouted at the Krewe

We're gonna have cafe au lait
The Saints are gonna play
We'll hear some jazz
And eat beignets again
Mardi Gras is gonna roll
Our city will will be whole
And at the Dome
The Saints are gonna win

On the banks of the Mississippi
The jewel of the delta shines
The jazz musicians play
And the gourmet critics dine
The trolley on St. Charles
Is rolling toward the zoo
Throw me something mister
Is shouted at the Krewe

Tchoupitoulas and Bourbon Street
Are thriving once again
In a city of religion
In a city that's known for sin
New Orleans was submerged
But she's high and dry these days
Thanks to all her great people
The jazz forever plays

On the banks of the Mississippi
The jewel of the delta shines
The paddle wheels are turning
And Tom Fitzmorris dines
The trolley on St. Charles
Is rolling toward the zoo
Throw me something mister
Is shouted at the Krewe

Oh, yeah!!!
