A Ticket To New Orleans

The last few dollars in his pocket

paid for a ticket to New Orleans

He went there with determination, chasing down a dream

He played harmonica, he played the guitar & piano too

He went to Louisiana cause he knew it was a mecca for the blues

He worked hard to make it, each night on stage paying his dues

Then he’d go “home” each night to a cheap

ramshackle motel room
