(wrote this following the big flood in New Orleans
caused by hurricane Katrina.)

-Hi! It’s me, New Orleans…

-I swear, it’s me…
I know I look kinda ragged
& all that, beat-up if you will,
but I’ll be OK, you’ll see,
I’ll rise again. (no pun intended!)

-All I need is to keep my faith
in who I know is up there,
& in the good people down here,
and work hard to make myself
look better than this,
because of who I am
& what I represent…

-I’m music, I’m tradition,
I’m Mardi Gras, I’m the Big Easy…

-I want fingers to snap again
when people hear Fats sing,
“I’m walking to New Orleans…”
