    To a daydream believer
    and a homecoming queen
    Here we come...walking down the street
    We get the funniest looks from everyone we meet.

    Hey, hey, we're the Monkees!!!
    And people say we monkey around
    But we're too busy singing
    To put anybody down.

    This time I'm walkin' to New Orleans
    I'm walkin' to New Orleans
    I'm going to need two pair of shoes
    When I get through walkin' me blues
    When I get back to New Orleans

    Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
    And miss it each night and day
    I know I’m not 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
    In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. -Martin Luther King Jr.

    In 1814 we took a little trip
    Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip
    We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
    And we caught the bloody British in a town in New Orleans
    “Death comes when memories of the past exceed the vision for the future.”

    Come on take a stroll down to Basin street
    Listen to the music with the dixieland beat, yeah
    I say, the magnolia blossoms fill the air
    And you ain't been to heaven if you ain't been there.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    There is a house in New Orleans
    They call the Rising Sun
    And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
    And God I know I'm one

    Riding along in my calaboose
    Still trying to get her belt a-loose
    All the way home I held a grudge
    For the safety belt that wouldn't budge
    Cruisin' and playing the radio
    With no particular place to go

    I was a varsity tackle and a hell of a block
    When I played my guitar
    I made the canyons rock-but-
    Every Saturday night
    I felt the fever grow
    Do ya know what it's like
    All revved up with no place to go
    Do ya know what it's like
    All revved up with no place to go

    Well, train, train, take me on out of this town
    Train, train, Lord, take me on out of this town
    Well, that woman I'm in love with, Lord, she's Memphis bound

    Long distance information, give me Memphis Tennessee
    Help me find the party trying to get in touch with me
    She could not leave her number, but I know who placed the call
    'Cause my uncle took the message and he wrote it on the wall

    Fairly soon the time will tell
    You, telling me the things you're gonna do for me
    I ain't blind and I don't like what I think I see

    Last time I was sober, man I felt bad
    Worst hangover that I ever had
    It took six hamburgers and scotch all night
    Nicotine for breakfast just to put me right
    'cos if you wanna run cool
    If you wanna run cool
    If you wanna run cool, you got to run
    On heavy, heavy fuel

    not too particular not too precise I'm just

    When I die let my ashes float down the Green River
    Let my soul roll on up to the Rochester dam
    I'll be halfway to Heaven with Paradise waitin'
    Just five miles away from wherever I am.

    When I die I don't want no coffin
    I thought about it all too often
    Just strap me in behind the wheel
    And bury me in my automobile

    Damn, this traffic jam ....
