(Verse 1)
How can I start all over?
And pack my life into one bag
It’s hard to believe my life’s not over
When it feels that way
They’re moving me to higher ground
Say, “Things’ll be better in Santa Fe...”
I should be happy to be leaving New Orleans
But I don’t feel that way... no

(Chorus)
'Cause I like chicory in my coffee
I take it with beignets
I get the blues on Bourbon Street
I like my life that way
And it may take some time for me
To get up off my knees
The wind may be howling but I’ll be alright
It’s just Louisiana breeze...

(Verse 2)
People rattle on about my city
Say, “Why pour good money into sinking clay?"
They think N’Olan folk will be better off scattered
But we don’t feel that way
I’d wither up in any dried-up kind of town
My roots are planted way too deep
I’d miss my friends
I’d miss the good times rolling ‘round
I’d miss the music in the streets

(Chorus)
I like chicory in coffee
I take it with beignets
I get the blues on Bourbon Street
I like my life that way
And it may take some time for us
To get up off our knees
The wind may be howling but we’ll be alright
It’s just Louisiana breeze...
Louisiana breeze...
Louisiana breeze...
Louisiana breeze...
