Lyrics

City Of Tears Will Rise Again

Close my eyes so I can see
My house, my home and my street
Imagine where my front porch was
Before Katrina and her flood.

River runs through my bedroom door
Mud and rocks heaped on my floor
Pictures gone from my kitchen walls
Pots and pans floating down the hall.

Chorus
City of tears will rise again
Our will and mind will not bend
A lot of hard work to return
Our strong desire will never end.

Family and friends I cannot find
Hope and pray for any sign
Knowing that God will surely guide
Confident that he will turn the tide.

No cars or trucks only boats
Our possessions destroyed but our hope floats
Cots and blankets are our home now
Don?t count us out, we?ll rebuild somehow.

Repeat Chorus
City of tears will rise again
Our will and mind will not bend
A lot of hard work to return
Our strong desire will never end.

New Orleans will always be our home
No matter where we may roam
Just close my eyes and I will see
My house, my home and my front street.

Just close my eyes and I will see
My house, my home and my front street?
