Mary Chapin Carpenter
Houston

Mama's got her babies

Sleeping in a grocery cart

Daddy's eyes are hazy

Wondering where they are

Waiting for the buses

Waiting on some Providence

Once we get to Houston

Maybe it will all make sense



Praying to the Father

And calling for the cavalry

Look at all this water

And somehow not a drop to drink

Now did you ever hear of nightmares

Coming in the light of day

Once we get to Houston

Maybe they'll just wash away

Roll on Mississippi, goodbye Crescent City

Les Bon Temps New Orleans

Never coming back to stay



Never been to Texas

Hope this bus is on a tear

Never seen the President

Maybe he will meet us there

Never knew a promise

That didn't break right in two

Once we get to Houston

Maybe one will come true

Roll on Mississippi, goodbye Crescent City

Les Bon Temps New Orleans

Never coming back to you



Last night I dreamed of rain

But golden light was all I saw

I heard my old dog barking

I went to see the Mardi Gras

I stood up on the banks

And looked out over Pontchartrain

I woke up here in Houston

Didn't even know my name

Roll on Mississippi, goodbye Crescent City

Les Bon Temps New Orleans

Never coming back again

Roll on Mississippi, Goodby Crescent City


Mirror lyrics:

Roll on Mississippi, Goodby Crescent City

Never coming back again

Les Bon Temps New Orleans

Roll on Mississippi, goodbye Crescent City

Didn't even know my name

I woke up here in Houston

And looked out over Pontchartrain

I stood up on the banks

I went to see the Mardi Gras

I heard my old dog barking

But golden light was all I saw

Last night I dreamed of rain



Never coming back to you

Les Bon Temps New Orleans

Roll on Mississippi, goodbye Crescent City

Maybe one will come true

Once we get to Houston

That didn't break right in two

Never knew a promise

Maybe he will meet us there

Never seen the President

Hope this bus is on a tear

Never been to Texas



Never coming back to stay

Les Bon Temps New Orleans

Roll on Mississippi, goodbye Crescent City

Maybe they'll just wash away

Once we get to Houston

Coming in the light of day

Now did you ever hear of nightmares

And somehow not a drop to drink

Look at all this water

And calling for the cavalry

Praying to the Father



Maybe it will all make sense

Once we get to Houston

Waiting on some Providence

Waiting for the buses

Wondering where they are

Daddy's eyes are hazy

Sleeping in a grocery cart

Mama's got her babies

Popular Songs:
fool with dreams

the kinks do it again

electric storm

ain't it time

eight miles high

i am the door

it had to be you

you are the sunshine of my life

pirates...the sequel

little drummer boy

juego de seducci„≥n

stjerneb„É‚īten

zing! went the strings of my heart

tied my hands

flaming star

where the ravens fly

nothing out of nothing

whiskey sour

last time

it should be you
