Lyrics

New Orleans

Written By: David C. Tebo

New Orleans
CHORUS
Hey! Joe! Where you gonna go,
when the rain starts whippin' and the wind does blow?
Hey! Joe! Where you gonna go,
when the levees overflow?

1. Delta's shrinkin' and the wetlands, too.
Not much to stop her when the Kat came through.
Surge flew higher than a Cockatoo,
down in New Orleans.

2. Betsy missed in '65,
Andrew left us barely alive.
George blew in but through it all,
we were high and dry.

REPEAT CHORUS

3. If the River don't get ya', then Ponchetrain will.
Like a soup bowl we will fill.
Don't blame God for what man has built.
Brought it on ourselves.

4. Sometimes not much God can do,
to protect us when we act like fools.
Building cities where the fish should school,
down in New Orleans.

REPEAT CHORUS

5. Ain't as simple as a song sounds.
Hard to control when politics abound.
Maybe there's a lesson to be found,
down in New Orleans.

REPEAT CHORUS

Shepherd

Written By: Dave Tebo

SHEPHERD

Shepherd take me down,
to the meadow below.
Rest with me by the water,
restore my soul.

I shalll never want,
with You by my side.
I shall find my way,
with You as my guide.

CHORUS
Though I walk through valleys deep and dark.
I will hold You in my heart.
Evil will shrink away and fear fade to a laugh,
comforted by Your rod and staff.

I sit now at the table,
You've prepared for me.
You ask for a love so strong,
to win the enemy.

Surely goodness and mercy,
will follow a love so true.
And I may dwell in Heaven,
forever with You.

REPEAT CHORUS
