It’s a fragment of the film “New Orleans”, directed by Arthur Lubin in 1947. This is the saddest part of the film, in my opinion, because everybody is obliged to leave the city they learnt to call a home and that’s what this song tell us about.
Video Rating: 4 / 5
From the Easter Tapes album. My favorite rendition. Sung by the songwriter himself. He played this live on a radio broadcast (Vin Scelsa on WNEW-FM) in the 70s.
