The South Will Rise Again In 2010

Many things cause me to be emotional and nostalgic...

Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
And miss it each night and day
I know I'm not wrong, the feeling's getting stronger
The longer I stay away

Miss the moss-covered vines, tall sugar pines
Where mockingbirds used to sing
I'd love to see that old lazy Mississippi
Hurrying into Spring

The moonlight on the bayou
A Creole tune that fills the air
I dream about magnolias in bloom
And I'm wishing 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

"Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans"
Written by Louis Alter & Eddie DeLange
For the first time in a year, I have participated in some typical New Orleanian activities. Last night I ate naked chicken strips and tonight I had a shrimp po-boy for dinner. I have driven on Magazine, Gentilly, Carrollton, St. Charles, etc. I watched oak trees cover the streets. I ran a stop sign and went through red lights. If you don't know what this means, than you don't know what it means to miss New Orleans.

I'm sorry for when I forgot you, pied-à-terre.
