Lyrics
Let's go down by the river
Watch the river light
Big old paddle wheeler
Rolling through the southern night
No need in talking you know how I feel
Every time that I'm with you, you make it all so real
Moon breaks on the water, everything is right
Let's go down by the river tonight

Let's go down by the river
Watch the ships come in
Every time I'm in New Orleans
I feel like I'm in love again
Good band is playing, night is rolling on
Let's get into the music until the night is gone
Love you till you're shining, oh my what a sight
Let's go down by the river tonight

Down in New Orleans
You know they let the good times roll on forever
Never say never
Down in New Orleans
You know they do it till it's all right - tight
Oh my what a night

I've been out in this big world
I've done everything
Still nobody does it
Like they do in New Orleans
They wake up dancing - dance until they sleep
Living on their feeling - they know life won't keep
Honey bring your new shades - morning comes up bright
When you're down by the river all night
