        [G]callin me [G7]home.
And I can hear the band begin
When the Saints Go Marchin' In
By the whiskers on my chin
New Orleans I'll be there
I'll drink you under the table
 ---- red nose, go for a walk

the old haunts what I wants
is red beans and rice
And wear the dress I like so well
Meet me at the old saloon
Make sure there's a Dixie Moon
New Orleans I'll be there
And deal the cards, roll the dice
 If it ain't that ole ---------
 --------------- me and you

Sam Jones and all?????
And I wish I was in New Orleans
I can see it in my dreams
Arm in arm down Burgundy
(rit) A bottle and, my friends and me,
New Orleans I'll be there
