My Little Old Home Down In New Orleans

Song Author Jimmie Rodgers Performer: Hank Snow Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]I never knew that the place I grew
Was the [C]grandest place on [G]earth
Till [A7]I roamed around from town to town
Now I know what it's [D7]worth
[G]Listen while I'll tell you bout the place I [C]mean
It's my [G]little ole home [D7]down in New [G]Orleans


In the sunny south where the black oil flows
[A7]That's where I long to [D7]be   
In [G]the Dixie land where the white cotton [C]grows
Is [A7]calling now to [D7]me   
[G]And soon I'll be in the land of my [C]dreams
That's my [G]little ole home [D7]down in New [G]Orleans


I've been east and I've been way out west
I've been [C]around most every[G]where
Now [A7]I'm heading south for a good long rest
I'll be glad when I get [D7]there
[G]All the wonderful things in the world I [C]seen
Are a [G]waiting for me [D7]down in New [G]Orleans


In the sunny south where the black oil flows
[A7]That's where I long to [D7]be   
In [G]the Dixie land where the white cotton [C]grows
Is [A7]calling now to [D7]me   
[G]And soon I'll be in the land of my [C]dreams
That's my [G]little ole home [D7]down in New [G]Orleans


I never knew that the place I grew
Was the grandest place on earth
Till I roamed around from town to town
Now I know what it's worth
Listen while I'll tell you bout the place I mean
It's my little ole home down in New Orleans

In the sunny south where the black oil flows
That's where I long to be
In the Dixie land where the white cotton grows
Is calling now to me
And soon I'll be in the land of my dreams
That's my little ole home down in New Orleans

I've been east and I've been way out west
I've been around most everywhere
Now I'm heading south for a good long rest
I'll be glad when I get there
All the wonderful things in the world I seen
Are a waiting for me down in New Orleans

In the sunny south where the black oil flows
That's where I long to be
In the Dixie land where the white cotton grows
Is calling now to me
And soon I'll be in the land of my dreams
That's my little ole home down in New Orleans
