I wanted something that could sit on the shelf next to “House of the Rising Sun” and not be ashamed of itself. Without trying to, Elizabeth made the band coalesce around her. She torched it up. She did it proud.

Lyrics:
Down in New Orleans there’s a house that I know
not the kind of place you tell your wife that you go
You go to New Orleans, get some of that sportin’ life
now you’ll say you’re doing alright

It was there I met some ladies, they were coming down the hall
if you’d heard one of their stories, Lord, you’d heard ‘em all
They come to New Orleans, got some of that sportin’ life
now they say they’re doing alright

Here comes Sally in her pretty new gown
She picks ‘em up and she lays ‘em down
She come to New Orleans, got some of that sportin’ life
now she says she’s doing alright

Here come Ginny with that wine glass in her hand
She’s drinking to forget some no-count pretty man
She come to New Orleans, got some of that sportin’ life
now she says she’s doing alright

The woman with the baby her name is Pearl
She got to have money to feed her little girl
They come to New Orleans, got some of that sportin’ life
now she says they’re doing alright

Here come Emma she been sniffing that cocaine
Got a bloody nose again it’s a low-down, dirty shame
She come to New Orleans, got some of that sportin’ life
now she says she’s doing alright

And here come Ella with them laudanum eyes
dirty dress outside, inside empty skies
She come to New Orleans, got some of that sportin’ life
now she says she’s doing alright

And here come Annie with that absinthe on her breath
one of these days it’s going to be her death
She come to New Orleans, got some of that sportin’ life
now she says she’s doing alright

The gentlemen come to visit, they drink and take their ease
with never a thought for the girls who never leave
They go to New Orleans, get some of that sportin’ life
now they say they’re doing alright

Down in New Orleans there’s a house that I know
not the kind of place you tell your wife that you go
if you go to New Orleans get some of that sportin’ life
now you say you’re doing alright
alright alright alright
