Do You Know What it Means to Miss New Orleans?
Written by: Louis Armstrong
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: ()

Lyrics:
Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
And miss it each night and day
I know I'm not wrong… this feeling's gettin' stronger
The longer, I stay away
Miss them moss covered vines…the tall sugar pines
Where mockin' birds used to sing
And I'd like to see that lazy Mississippi…hurryin' into spring

The moonlight on the bayou…….a Creole tune…. that fills the air
I dream… about Magnolias in bloom……and I'm wishin' I was there

Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
When that's where you left your heart
And there's one thing more…I miss the one I care for
More than I miss New Orleans

(instrumental break)

The moonlight on the bayou…….a Creole tune…. that fills the air
I dream… about Magnolias in bloom……and I'm wishin' I was there

Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
When that's where you left your heart
And there's one thing more…I miss the one I care for
More…..more than I miss…….New Orleans

Jimmy changed the words to
And I'd like to see that lazy Mississippi…back in its banks by spring.
