Way Down Yonder in New Orleans
Freddy Cannon Lyrics


Well, way down yonder in New Orleans in the land of the dreamy scenes
There's a Garden of Eden, ah, you know what I mean

Yeah, Creole babies with flashin' eyes softly whisper with tender sighs
And then you stop
Oh won't you give your lady fair a little smile
And then you stop
You bet your life you'll linger there a little while

Yeah, there is heaven right here on earth with those beautiful queens
Yeah, way down yonder in New Orleans

Way down yonder in New Orleans, woo, in the land of the dreamy scenes
There's a Garden of Eden, you know what I mean

Well, Creole babies with flashin' eyes softly whisper with tender sighs
And then you stop
Oh won't you give your lady fair a little smile
And then you stop
You bet your life you'll linger there a little while

Yeah, there is heaven right here on earth with those beautiful queens
Well, way down yonder in New Orleans
Yeah, woo

Well, way down yonder in New Orleans in the land of the dreamy scenes
There's a Garden of Eden, ah, you know what I mean

Yeah, Creole babies with flashin' eyes softly whisper with tender sighs
And then you stop 
Oh won't you give your lady fair a little smile
And then you stop 
You bet your life you'll linger there a little while

Yeah, there is heaven right here on earth with those beautiful queens
Yeah, way down yonder in New Orleans

Way down yonder in New Orleans, woo, in the land of the dreamy scenes
There's a Garden of Eden, you know what I mean

Well, Creole babies with flashin' eyes softly whisper with tender sighs
And then you stop 
Oh won't you give your lady fair a little smile
And then you stop 
You bet your life you'll linger there a little while

Yeah, there is heaven right here on earth with those beautiful queens
Well, way down yonder in New Orleans
Yeah, woo

This song was written and first performed in 1922. It was transformed to a R&R song. I was 15 years old when Freddie's version first came out. I love it!!!! It brings back 1959.

Al Jolson recorded it in 1922

There is a version by Al Jolson on YouTube which amazingly sounds very similar.

I listened to this man all the time as a teenager. I loved him!
