We Were Dazed
(c) 2005 RedHawkins.com

We were day-ay-azed - by wind and rain.
Floated through the streets for days - after wind and rain
Lay there dead and dyin' - after wind and rain
Pray-ay-ayed for shelter - after wind and rain
Oh the cruel wind and rain

As they bathe in the waters - of Pontchartrain
'You know dem bones dem bones - they gonna rise again
'You know the souls of dem old bones - gonna rise again
Gonna rise and be baptized - by Pontchartrain

I say hey - hey - hey - I'll never be the same
After what I've seen today - I'll never be the same
Nous verrons pas plus - les bon temps roulez
Not gonna see no good times - rollin' here today

Gonna be a long long long time 'fore les bon temps roulez
Gonna see them old wagons rollin' - rollin' here today
Oh the cruel wind and rain

Old City of N'awlins - will never be the same
Jamais, jamais, jamais encore - n'sera pas la meme
I say, jamais, jamais encore - n'sera pas la meme
Jamais, jamais, jamais encore - n'sera pas la meme
I say, jamais, jamais encore - n'sera pas la meme
Jamais, jamais, jamais encore - n'sera pas la meme
