Christmastime in New Orleans – Lyrics

Magnolia trees
At night
Sparkling bright
Fields of cotton
Look Wintery white
When it’s
Christmas time
In New Orleans

A barefoot choir
In prayer
Fills the air
Mississippi folks
Are gathering there
When it’s
Christmas time
In New Orleans

Bridge:
You’ll see
A dixieland Santa Claus
Leading the band
To a good old Creole beat
And golly what a spirit
You can only hear it
Down on Basin Street

Your cares will disappear
When you hear
Hallelujah
St. Nicholas is here
When it’s Christmas time
In New Orleans

Oh, yeah, baby
