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?
