Big Easy


Leavin' Lousiana at dawn
Lookin' back but I'm goin' on
Watch the rain, chase this morning sky
Sun's rise on the soft sound of a sigh

Chorus
The Big Easy wasn't easy last night
Heartbreak stormed down Bourbon Street
And blew out all the lights
And the jazz just faded into a lonely, long goodbye
The Big Easy wasn't easy last night

Didn't see a storm on the way
Clear skies when I woke up yesterday
I missed the lightning in your eyes
Thunder rolled, blasted my blue skies

Chorus
The Big Easy wasn't easy last night
Heartbreak stormed down Bourbon Street
And blew out all the lights
And the jazz just faded into a lonely, long goodbye
The Big Easy wasn't easy last night

Then you took the last of my pride
Squall line hit me from behind
You said you loved me but you lied
Gale force, nowhere left to hide

Chorus
The Big Easy wasn't easy last night
Heartbreak stormed down Bourbon Street
And blew out all the lights
And the jazz just faded into a lonely, long goodbye
The Big Easy wasn't easy last night

Leavin' Lousiana at dawn
Lookin' back but I'm goin' on
Headed for cloudless Texas sky
Time to say the soft sound of goodbye
