Artist/Band: Mary Chapin Carpenter
Lyrics for Song: Houston
Lyrics for Album: The Calling [1996]



Mama's got her babies

Sleeping in a grocery cart

Daddy's eyes are hazy

Wondering where they are

Waiting for the buses

Waiting on some Providence

Once we get to Houston

Maybe it will all make sense



Praying to the Father

And calling for the cavalry

Look at all this water

And somehow not a drop to drink

Now did you ever hear of nightmares

Coming in the light of day

Once we get to Houston

Maybe they'll just wash away

Roll on Mississippi, goodbye Crescent City

Les Bon Temps New Orleans

Never coming back to stay



Never been to Texas

Hope this bus is on a tear

Never seen the President

Maybe he will meet us there

Never knew a promise

That didn't break right in two

Once we get to Houston

Maybe one will come true

Roll on Mississippi, goodbye Crescent City

Les Bon Temps New Orleans

Never coming back to you



Last night I dreamed of rain

But golden light was all I saw

I heard my old dog barking

I went to see the Mardi Gras

I stood up on the banks

And looked out over Pontchartrain

I woke up here in Houston

Didn't even know my name

Roll on Mississippi, goodbye Crescent City

Les Bon Temps New Orleans

Never coming back again

Roll on Mississippi, Goodby Crescent City
