10 Hopeful Songs For Lousiana & New Orleans (page 3)
8. “Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans?”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jamie Cullum[/lastfm]
If you’ve never heard Jamie Cullum, he is like the British version of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Michael Buble[/lastfm] and a personal favorite of the author. He does a fantastic version of the oft-covered song “Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans?” that makes us feel like we are floating languorously along the Mississippi.
Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans/I miss it both night and day/I know that it’s 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
