Verse:
I nev -er had this kind -a feel -in', With drag -gin' heart and brain a -reel -in'.
What's the mat -ter? Here's the mat -ter, Here's the thing that's real -ly wrong with me:
 
Chorus:
Do you know what it means to miss New Or -leans, And miss it each night and day?
I know I'm not wrong, the feel -in's get -tin' strong -er, The long -er I stay a -way.
Miss the moss -cov -ered vines, the tall sug -ar pines, Where mock -in' birds used to sing,
And I'd like to see the la -zy Mis -sis -sip -pi, A hur -ry -in' in -to spring.
The moon -light on the bay -ou, A cre -ole tune that fills the air;
I dream a -bout mag -nol -las in June, And soon I'm whis -in' that I was there.
Do you know what it means to miss New Or -leans, When that's where you left your heart.
And there's some -thing more: I miss the one I care for, More than I miss New Or -leans.
