NEW ORLEANS: Freddy (Boom Boom)Cannon. Top of the charts in 1960. #1. G Come on everybody take a trip with me, Down the Mississippi, down to New Orleans. C The honeysuckle is bloomin' on the honeysuckle vine, G And love is bloomin' there all the time. D7 C7 Every southern belle is a Mississippi queen, G Down the Mississippi down in New Orleans. (I say yeah, yeah, yeah yeah, yeah(Pause)..x2) ***(Chords are the same for all verses.)*** #2. Come on take a stroll down to Basin Street, And listen to the music with the Dixie-Land beat. The Magnolia blossoms fill the air. If you ain't been to Heaven, then you ain't been there. French Moss hangin' from a big Oak tree, Down the Mississippi, down in New Orleans. (I said yea, yea, yea yea, Yeah!(Pause) Look out now, yea, yea, yeah!) I said there's French Moss hangin' from a big Oak tree, Down the Mississippi, down in New Orleans. A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
