Bellocq's Women


Of course, no tour of New Orleans is complete without a look at Bellocq's Women.

  1. ''Way Down Yonder In New Orleans''"


    well, way down yonder in new orleans in the land of the dreamy scenes
    there's a garden of eden, ah-you know what i mean

    yeah, creole babies with flashin' eyes softly whisper with tender sighs
    and then you stop
    oh won't you give your lady fair a little smile
    and then you stop
    you bet your life you'll linger there a little while

    yeah, there is heaven right here on earth with those beautiful queens
    yeah, way down yonder in new orleans
    whoo

    way down yonder in new orleans, whoo, in the land of the dreamy scenes
    there's a garden of eden, you know what i mean

    well, creole babies with flashin' eyes softly whisper with tender sighs
    and then you stop
    oh won't you give your lady fair a little smile
    and then you stop
    you bet your life you'll linger there a little while

    yeah, there is heaven right here on earth with those beautiful queens
    well, way down yonder in new orleans
    yeah whoo


    No doubt these photos inspire such lyrics.
