Crescent City Lyrics

(Lucinda Williams)

Everybody's had a few now
They talkin' about who know who
I'm goin' back to the Crescent City
Where everything's still the same.

This town has said what it has to say
Now I'm after that back highway
And the longest bridge
I've ever crossed over Ponchartrain.

Tu le ton son temps that's what we'd say
We used to dance the night away
Me and my sister, me and my brother
We used to walk down by the river.

Mama lives in Mandeville
I can hardly wait until
I can hear my Zydeco
And laissez le bons temps roulez.

Take rides in open cars
My brother knows where the best bars are
Let's see how these blues'll do
In the town where the good times stay.

Tu le ton son ton, that's what we'd say
We used to dance the night away
Me and my sister, me and my brother
We used to walk down by the river.

--- Instrumental ---

Tu le ton son temps that's what we'd say
We used to dance the night away
Me and my sister, me and my brother
We used to walk down by the river...
