Emmylou Harris — Crescent City lyrics

Everybody's had a few
Now they're talking about who knows who
I'm going 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 Pontchartrain

Tous les temps sans temps
That's what we say
We used to dance the night away
Me and my sister me and my brother
We used to waltz down by the river

Mama lives in Mandeville
I can hardly wait until
I hear that Zydeco
And laissez les bon temps roulet
I 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

Tous les temps sans temps
That's what we say
We used to dance the night away
Me and my sister me and my brother
We used to waltz down by the river

Tous les temps sans temps
That's what we say
We used to dance the night away
Me and my sister me and my brother
We used to waltz down by the river
