Words & Music by Mark Wavle
Dedicated to Christine, with whom I’d travel to the ends of the earth.

Chorus
I’ve taken my bride down to Texas
But never to New Orleans
With all of the places we’ve been in our lives
There’s so much more left to find

So much beauty our eyes have seen
The canyon in the mist & the babbling stream
The dry streets in the West & the ships on the sea
There’s no one I’d rather see these with more than her

What will await us as we drive away?
Rolling hills of green and open sky
The lights of the city, they gleam in her eyes
There’s no one I want more right by my side

We’ve had heartache, joy & tears
Trials of all kinds, but laughter, oh!
Rainy days and sunshine and a promise to hold
What will be next?
What will be next?
I can’t wait to see what’s next along our road

I’ve taken my bride down to Texas
But never to New Orleans
Let’s head out for New Orleans
