about

Linda and I have always had a special place in our hearts for New Orleans. One of the joys on this album and there are a lot of them, is to hear her accordion playing side by side with the phenomenal piano sound of Steve O'Connor.

lyrics

Goin’ to New Orleans

Music and Lyrics by Jim Love

It’s been too damn long since we went away together
Time to ditch the cold and snow and find some sunny weather
Let’s catch our favourite band, let’s hit the music scene
Come on baby let’s go to New Orleans…

Come on baby let’s go to New Orleans
Come on baby let’s go to New Orleans
Pack your bag, grab your coat
Lock the door and leave a note
Tell the folks we’ve gone to New Orleans

When we walk down Bourbon Street we’ll smile at everyone we meet,
Come on baby - let’s go to New Orleans
You can’t help but tap your feet, when you hear that Creole beat
Playin’ in the streets of New Orleans

Come on baby let’s go to New Orleans
Come on baby let’s go to New Orleans
Pack your bag, grab your coat
Lock the door and leave a note
Tell the folks we’ve gone to New Orleans

We’ll go out and get in line for Preservation Hall
Come baby let’s go to New Orleans
Love to hear that southern drawl, love to hear them say y’all
Y’all y’all we gone to New Orleans

Come on baby let’s go to New Orleans
Come on baby let’s go to New Orleans
Pack your bag, grab your coat
Lock the door and leave a note
Tell the folks we’ve gone to New Orleans

Instrumental

When we walk down Bourbon Street, we’ll smile at everyone we meet,
Come on baby let’s go to New Orleans
You can’t help but tap your feet when you hear that Creole beat
Playin’ in the streets of New Orleans

And we’re playin’ in the streets of New Orleans
We’re playin’ in the streets of New Orleans…

about

Jim Love Ontario

I wrote my first song when I was about 14 with the line "write me, box nothing, Trans Canada Highway". A few months later, I ran away to Vancouver. The songs never stopped.

In my 20's a Juno nomination and gold album as a writer for a kid's band. A couple of musicals live and on CBC and a series of songs.

After 40 years I'm back with some of my best songs. Never too late.
