Lyrics
Sixty-one out of Baton Rouge
Down Louisian'
Heading for the gulf of Mexico
Sun is beating, ain't no breeze
Spanish moss from big old trees
Listening to the cajun radio

Going down on the Mississippi Queen
Going down down down to New Orleans

Corner bands on Jackson Square
Music fills the air
Bon temps roulez, let the good times roll
Tipitina's, second line
Irma Thomas, Allen Toussaint
Snooks Eaglin, Doctor John, Fats Domino

Going down on the Mississippi Queen
Going down down down to New Orleans

Crawfish, much as you can eat
Down on Bourbon Street
Oyster po'boy, best I've ever seen
Melting pot of jazz and soul
Blues and rock 'n roll
Creole gumbo, dirty rice 'n beans

Going down on the Mississippi Queen
Going down down down to New Orleans

Professor Longhair dead 'n gone
His spirit lingers on
In the crescent city on lake Ponchartrain
Feel the rhythm in the street
New Orleans sound, New Orleans beat
Iko Iko and Little Liza Jane

Going down on the Mississippi Queen
Going down down down to New Orleans
