The New Orleans Catahoulas New Orleans, Louisiana

The Catahoulas are a New Orleans Rhythm and Blues band that specializes in playing the lost sounds of the city’s golden age of R&B- the 1950s and ‘60s. Each of the band’s all-star members have hefty resumes and impressive musical pedigrees. Almost all are native New Orleanians. In short: they were born and bred to play this music. ... more

Track Name: High Heel Sneakers
Put on your red dress, baby
Cause we are going out tonight
Put on your red dress, sugar
Cause we are going out tonight
I'm gonna bring my boxing gloves
Cause some fool might start a fight

Put on your high-heel sneakers
And put your wig-hat on your head
Put on your high-heel sneakers
And put that wig-hat on your head
Somebody better call the coroner
Cause I'm sure you're gonna knock 'em dead
Track Name: Let The Good Times Roll
People see me but they just don't know
What's in my heart and why I love you so
I love you baby, like a miner loves gold
Come on, baby, let the good times roll

Some people livin' in make believe
They keep a lot of dirt up their sleeve
My love for you, it's the kind that never folds
So come on, baby, let the good times roll

Love is nice when it's understood
It's even nicer when you're feeling good
You got me flipping like a flag on a pole
Come on, baby, let the good times roll
Track Name: Yours Truly
Got to go call that number
Got to see if she's at home
Your Truly loves that woman
and I never will roam

I got to go and settle down
stop agonizing such a clown
I'm in love love love love
And I'm going to settle down
Track Name: Shrimp and Gumbo
Mambo mambo
Creole gumbo
Mambo mambo
Lucky Dog gumbo

Mambo mambo
Creole gumbo
Mambo mambo
Shrimp and gumbo
Track Name: Bald Headed Beulah
Bald headed beulah
Went to town and balled away
Gained twenty pounds ‘cause she was skinny as a twig

She made eyes at poor Uncle John
In the purple bathing suit she had on
Bald headed beulah
Went to town and balled away

Bald headed beulah
Went to town and balled away
Bald headed beulah
Sometimes take a little swig

Sometimes blonde and then brunette
Poor Uncle John don’t recognize her yet
Bald headed beulah
Went to town and balled away

She's the queen from New Orleans
And she's a fiend down on the bean
Bald headed beulah has a ball
The gentlemen then begin to call
Bald headed beulah
Went to town and balled away
Track Name: Down Home Girl
Lord I swear the perfume you wear was made out of turnip greens
Every time I kiss you girl, you taste like pork and beans
I don't know why you worry them standing by in high heels
I can tell by the way you walk, you been strutting through them cotton fields

Ohhh you so
Down home girl

Every time you dance child, you take my breath away
Every time you move like that I got to get down and pray
Don't you know that dress of your was made of fiberglass
Every time you move like that I got to go to Sunday mass

Ohhh you so
Down home girl

I'm a take you to the muddy Mississippi and push you in
Just so I can see the water run on down your silky skin
Gonna take you back to New Orleans down in Dixieland
Wanna see you do the Second Line mama with an umbrella in your hand

Ohhh you so
Down home girl
Track Name: My Babe
My baby don't stand no cheatin', my babe
My baby don't stand no cheatin', my babe
My baby don't stand no cheatin',
She don't like none of that midnight creepin'
My babe, do do do, my babe

My babe, I know she love me, my babe
My babe, I know she love me, my baby
My babe, I know she love me,
All she wanna do is kiss and hug me
My babe, do do do, my babe

My baby don't stand no foolin', my babe
My baby, she don't stand no foolin', my babe
My baby, she don't stand no foolin',
When she get hot there ain't no coolin'
My babe, do do do, my babe
Track Name: Bourbon Street Parade
Let's fly down or drive down
To New Orleans
That city has pretty
Historic scenes

I'll take you parade you
Down Bourbon Street
You'll see all the hot spots, talk to all the big shots
Down on Bourbon Street
Track Name: Walking to New Orleans
This time I'm walkin' to New Orleans
I'm walkin' to New Orleans
I'm gonna need two pair of shoes
When I get through walkin' these blues
When I get back to New Orleans

I've got my suitcase in my hand
Now ain't that a shame?
I'm leavin' here today
Yes, I'm goin' back home to stay
Yes, I'm walkin to New Orleans

You used to be my honey
Till you stole all my money
No use for you to cry
Girl I'll see you by and by
'Cause I'm walkin' to New Orleans

I've got no time for talkin'
I've go to keep a-walkin'
New Orleans is my home
That's the reason why I'm goin'
Yes, I'm walkin' to New Orleans

I'm walkin' to New Orleans
I'm walkin' to New Orleans
Track Name: Tootie Ma
Tootie Ma is a big fine thing
Ooh Nah Nay shake that thing
Tootie Ma is a big fine thing
Ooh Nah Nay shake that thing

Tootie Ma she likes that wine
Ooh Nah Nay shake that thing
Tootie Ma sure is fine
Ooh Nah Nay shake that thing

Finest girl you ever saw
Did something against the law
Stole my maw from my paw
I'm gonna knock on her door

Wait for me on a Mardi Gras Day
Ooh Nah Nay shake that thing
Tootie Ma is a big fine thing
Ooh Nah Nay shake that thing
