    LYRICS:
    Stomping Ground
    I was born in the southern land
    That's where I became a man
    My roots was down in New Orleans
    The birth of jazz and voodoo queens
    From the heart of Louisiana
    Marie Laveaux, and Mojo Hannah
    Grew up on the music of the streets
    Second line bands and the Indian beats

    That's where it's going down
    Back on my stompin' ground

    ‘Fesser Longhair, Fats Domino
    From Smiley Lewis, to the Great Satchmo
    From the Wild Tchoupatoulas,
    to the Creole Wild
    West
    Neither tribe didn't take no mess
    From way up town in the Thirteenth ward
    The Crescent City was my back yard
    With Mac Rebennack and Scarface John
    Hung in the Dew Drop all night long

    That's where it's going down
    Back on my stompin' ground

    That's where it's going down
    Back on my stompin' ground
    Back on my stompin’ ground

    Way down yonder in New Orleans
    The land of them creole queens
    I sure love this southern town
    It got me through a lot of ups and downs
    Times were bad and times were good

    I owe it all to my neighborhood
    From the Ninth ward, to way uptown
    Every block was my stompin’ grounds

    That's where it's going down
    Back on my stompin' ground

    That's where it's going down
    Back on my stompin' ground

    Mole Face and Melvin, Billy Beat the World
    Trecherous Slim, Secondline Black
    Big Chief Jolly, Ratty Chin
    Brother Jake, Apache Red

    Stackalee, James Booker
    Marvin and Johnny, Art the Mighty Row
    Hornman, Jabby Izzy Koo

    That's where it's going down
    Back on my stompin' ground

    Calliope Project, Magnolia
    St. Thomas, Pilot Land, St. Bernard
    Melpomine – Yeah
    Sometimes them streets was mean, can ya dig?
    But that was my stompin’ ground, where y’at, Jack?
