Lyrics
SIDE B:



I was just a -

(beat drops)

Bayou Boy,
Raised as soldier,
Had to get colder,
Dad was barely older,
Bolder than my brother,
So clever, joined the Guard,
Wasn't really that hard,
But it's that, or the yard,
Now a weekend's turned to weeks,
Now New Orlean's reeks,
Now normal people are lookin' like freaks,
Play hide and seek with the bodies,
Politicians, paparazzi,
Was a Superdome Nazi,
Tried to play it like it's Yahtzee,
They say we need peace,
But they fired the police,
Now soldiers say desist, and cease,
Or get deceased,
I'm on my knees,
Every night,
I wanna fight for what's right,
But I'm staring at my city,
Underwater every night,
And Blackwater rises,
When a crackhead in sight,
Pop-pop!
From over there,
He was puttin' up a fight,
I ain't shuttin' up tonite,
Gotta knuckle-up and fight,
But if I stick my neck out,
They'll pull a Tech out tonite,
I put my check out of sight,
Can't stand the Blood Money,
Can't stand to see my blood run from me,
A Bayou Boy, now a Bayou Man,

I need to take a stand,

And that's why I ran...


(chorus)

Prayer for New Orleans,
The fallen, the calling,
Prayer,
For the Chocolate City,
To start balling,

Prayer for the Devil's,
Dreamin' of the next date,
With fate, we relate,
Can we say police state?

(x2)

Say a prayer for New Orleans...

(x2)


I'm on the run now,,
Having fun now,,
Got a gun now,,
Let's see who run now...
But they' grabbin' guns,
Left, Right, and Center,
Homeowners and renters,
Store owners, dissenters,
My score only a slender,
Glock-9, all mine,
Feelin' fine,
If I gotta jack a bread line,
I gotta get mine,
Get food,
Get a home, get shelter,
The world's helter skelter,
The cards that were dealt were,
A four-leaf clover,
In a Range Rover,
Soldiers sayin': "Chill out man - the war is over!"
Hope I'm sober,
I'm on my own, and I'm scared,
'Cause Uncle Sam, really seems mad, when he stared,

I Dared to Dream, like Martin once said,

Now I'm scared to dream, or I'll wind up dead...


(chorus)

Prayer for New Orleans,
The fallen, the calling,
Prayer,
For the Chocolate City,
To start balling,

Prayer for the Devil's,
Dreamin' of the next date,
With fate, we relate,
Can we say police state?

(x2)

Say a prayer for New Orleans...

(x2)


Ah, found me a toolshed, a place to nap,
I guess this is where, I should check out my map,
Let's see, Checkpoint A, and Checkpoint B,
And I seem to recall, Checkpoints C and D,
Looks like nowhere's free, and I'm'a die in hell,
And New Orleans, is one big jail...


(chorus)

Prayer for New Orleans,
The fallen, the calling,
Prayer,
For the Chocolate City,
To start balling,

Prayer for the Devil's,
Dreamin' of the next date,
With fate, we relate,
Can we say police state?

(x2)

Say a prayer for New Orleans...

(x2)
