New Orleans
The Blues Brothers Lyrics


I said hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah
(I said hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah)
I said a hey, a hey, hey, yeah
(I said a hey, a hey, hey, yeah)
A come on everybody take a trip with me, well
Down the Mississippi down to New Orleans

They got a honeysuckle growing on a honeysuckle vine
And love is a blooming there all the time
Well every southern belle is a Mississippi queen
Down the Mississippi down to New Orleans


I said hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah
(I said hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah)
I said a hey, hey, hey, yeah
(I said a hey, hey, hey, yeah)


A come on take a stroll down to Basin street
Listen to the music with that Dixieland beat
Well the magnolia blossoms fill the air
Whoa,whoa, and you ain't been to heaven till you been down there

They got French moss hangin from a big oak tree
Get outta here Jimmy Vaughan take it!


I said hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah
(I said hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah)
I said a hey, hey, hey, yeah
(I said a hey, hey, hey, yeah)


Come on everybody take a trip with me
(whoo!)
Down the Mississippi down to New Orleans, yeah, yeah.
With a honeysuckle hanging on a honeysuckle vine
Well love is blooming there all the time
Every southern belle is a Mississippi queen
Down the Mississippi down to New Orleans


Yeah, yeah, yeah
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)


Come on take a stroll down to Basin street
Listen to the music with the dixieland beat, yeah
I say, the magnolia blossoms fill the air
And you ain't been to heaven if you ain't been there.
Honeysuckle hanging from a hollow tree
Down in Mississippi down in New Orleans


Well, I said Hey, hey, hey, yeah
(Hey, hey, hey, yeah)
I said a look out John, hey, yeah, yeah
( I said a look out John hey, yeah, yeah)

Elwood J. Blues: Well kid I guess it's time to say goodbye,
Buster Blues, - I'm not going with them.
Mighty Mack: - You can't stay with Elwood.
Cab Blues: They think he kidnapped you.
Buster Blues: But they're wrong.
Cab Blues: They won't believe that.
Mighty Mack: He's right, Buster.
Buster Blues: If I go back with them, they'll put me in a home with people... ...who don't love me, and put you back in jail. I'll never see you again. And we'll both be sad forever.
Elwood J. Blues: So, what do we do?
Buster Blues: We're all brothers now, right?
Mighty Mack: Right
Buster Blues: You guys stay here and distract them. I'll kidnap Elwood.
Cab Blues: Good luck.
Mighty Mack: See you down the road.
Elwood J. Blues: Further on up the road.
Buster Blues: The Lord does work in mysterious ways, Elwood.
Elwood J. Blues: Yeah Put on your seat belt.
