Lyrics

Written by: MARK BRINE

Midday leanin’ up against an iron lamp post
Intersection of Bourbon Street and Toulouse
Tourist passin’ with lotsa green (stuff) down in their wallets
But, me I’m on the wrong side lookin’ down the Bourbon St. Blues
Met Miss Rattlesnake Annie back up in (Meridian) Mississippi
She tried t’ warn me but it’s just never no use
She said “Son, you’re gonna starve down there in Louisiana
Y’know them people down there just ain’t heard your kinda news
You are gonna be stranded on the WRONG SIDE OF THE BOURBON ST. BLUES
Chorus:
Think I’ll go down t’ Jackson Square ain’t got nothin more t’ lose
Set-up on the sidewalk ‘n sing for spare change ‘cause there’s no doubt about it
We’s on the wrong side of the Bourbon St. Blues
Yeah, there’s no doubt about it brother
We’s on the wrong side of the Bourbon St. Blues
Think I sang about this place once in a very vicarious-type premonition
Said I was gonna move my shoes, yeah, I ain’t gonna be sticken’ ‘round here no more
I’m gonna out-run them Bourbon St. Blues yeah, I’m gonna move my shoes
'N out-run them Bourbon St. Blues ‘cause I ain’t gonna be on the wrong side
Lookin’ down the Bourbon St. Blues
