Bienville - Lyrics

North to Oklahoma to visit the folks
East across 40, already half broke
Memphis in the daytime is hotter than hell
Bound for New Orleans and the Bienville Hotel

Down through the delta, the Dockery farm
Saw the devil in the moonlight, spinnin' a yarn
The night down in Yazoo, we both rested well
Dreamin' 'bout crawfish and the Bienville Hotel

All of my life I prayed I would find
Another lost soul with a travelin' mind
The years spent wishing left me ill prepared
For the Bienville Hotel and the time that we shared

The old Crescent City buzzed like a sign
Full of the faithful, sunlight and wine
From the moment we laid eyes our hearts gently fell
We checked in and made love to the Bienville Hotel

All of my life I prayed I would find
Another lost soul with a travelin' mind
The years spent wishing left me ill prepared
For the Bienville Hotel and the time that we shared

Ever the rebel, a press your luck teen
We dropped our last twenty to a dollar machine
When the wheels stopped rollin', there were no ringing bells
Back to the showers at the Bienville Hotel

All of my life I prayed I would find
Another lost soul with a travelin' mind
The years spent wishing left me ill prepared
For the Bienville Hotel and the time that we shared

As we grow old together, one story I'll tell
Is how we got back home from the Bienville Hotel
