Tragically Hip Lyrics

New Orleans Is Sinkin' Lyrics
Bourbon Blues on the street
Loose and complete
Under skies so smokey blue-green
I can't forsake, a dixie dead shake
So we dance the sidewalks clean

Chorus
My memory is muddy, whats this river that I'm in
New Orleans is sinkin' man and I don't wanna swim

Colonel Tom, whats wrong, whats goin' on
Can't tie yourself up for a deal
He said hey north, your south, shut your big mouth
You gotta do what you feel is real
Ain't got no picture postcards. ain't got no souveniers
My baby, she don't know me when I'm thinkin' bout' those years.

Pale as a lightbulb, hangin' on a wire
Suckin' up to someone just to stoke the fire
Pickin; out the highlights of the scenery
Saw a little cloud it looked a little like me
I had my hands in the river, my feet back up on the bank
Looked up to the Lord above and said Hey man thanks
Sometimes I feel so good I gotta scream
She said Gordie baby I know exactly whatcha mean
She said. She said. I swear to God she said
Ahhhhh....No....
Ohhhhh....Yeah!

Chorus
My memory is muddy whats this river that I'm in
New orleans is sinkin' man and I don't wanna swim

Swim!
