I got tired of all this cold and snow hopped a
Plane to New Orleans
Walked down to Bourbon Street in my
Boots and old blue jeans
There inside the Famous Door I met the
Pretty little Delta queen
I said I think I’ve just seen an angel
And then the devil got a hold of me

Are you the one I’ve been dreaming of? Good
God almighty must be sent from heaven above
Way too young but son of a gun that night I Fell it felt like
heaven but I’m goin to Hell

I was sitting on a bar stool when she
Came and grabbed my hand, she said
“You look like you’ve got rhythm
And I’ve just got to dance”
Well who was I to argue, I was just a
Victim of circumstance and it was
One for the whiskey, two for the show
We got a little out of hand

She said are you the one I’ve been dreaming of?
Good God I think I might be falling in love
Distinguished guys really ring my bell
I believe in love I don’t believe in hell
We danced until our legs gave out
Drank our share of beer
I don’t recall too much at all
After we got out of here
Yeah, things got a little fuzzy
But we sure had a ball
I woke to find a lipstick kiss
And this writing on the wall

You’re not the one I’ve been dreaming of
And I don’t think I’m falling in love
But it felt like heaven and that’s alright
Cause I had a hell of a time last night

Momma said “love’s sweet and life is short”
You got to live for today
When love comes knocking at your door
You best answer right away

Well I grabbed my bags and I checked out
Caught the first plane home
When I unpacked I found a note
Between the toothpaste and the comb
It said when you are in New Orleans
And if you’re feeling all alone
Just call me at this number
And I’ll make you feel at home

Cause you’re the one I’ve been dreaming of
When I just wanna dance and I just wanna have fun
It’ll feel like heaven and that’s alright
And we’ll have a hell of a time that night
Cause we had a hell of a time last night
