Me And Jonnie, Goin' to New Orleans.
Looks like it's gonna' be a long journey.
Riding along and tunin' in,
Wanting Jonnie to be a better friend
Than she has been to other men.
Sittin' back as the world passes by.
Looks like a masterpiece unto my eyes.
Creeks and trees and a flower there.
Just imagine that in Jonnie's hair,
And its beauty we two could share
We've been so sad,
Yes we have,
We've been alone.
The only friend we've had,
Has been our,
Very own imagination.
We've been so patient,
Taking our time,
Waiting our turn,
To give our love and not get burned,
And the world has turned us on.
The sun is risin' on a meadow.
The mist is asleep beneath the trees.
Jonnie's asleep in my shadow.
She's made her mind up to stay with me.
And we have become such good friends.
And our love, you know, our love will never end---
Our love will never end----
Our love will never end---
(missing lines? Repeat chorus?)

I was walking down a street in Alexandria Louisiana in 1973 and came upon a lovely girl sitting on the hood of a Camaro. I flirted and after talking awhile she told me she wanted someone to go with her to New Orleans to pick up some pot. She said, "I know where to go. I just need someone to go with me." I wrote this song about the fantasy of what that trip might have been. I seem to recall not taking the bait to be her someone and her losing interest in me and leaving. I've always wondered if I missed a bullet, literally, in The Big Easy.
