Le bon temps roulette
This whole week has had a Mark Twain theme. From his biography: He worked as a printer and a reporter selling much of his work to newspapers. He continually moved from town to town. In 1857, he decided to move to South America to make a fortune there. He boarded a riverboat and headed for New Orleans where he would arrange the rest of his trip. However, he never made it past New Orleans.
The song is about the people who were stranded at the convention center in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. All royalties of the (itunes) download single is given to Musicians' Village in New Orleans, and is available on Harry Connick, Jr's album "Oh My NOLA".
