Dire Straits - The Planet Of New Orleans Lyrics




Standin' in the corner
Of toulouse and dauphine
Waitin' on marie-ondine
I'm tryin' to place a tune
Under a louisiana moonbeam
On the planet of New Orleans
In a bar they call the saturn
And in her eyes of green
And somethin' that she said in a dream
Inside of my suit I got my mojo root
And a true love figurine
For the planet of new orleans

New Orleans - the other planet
With other life upon it
And everythin' that's shakin' in between
If you should ever land upon it
You better know what's on it
The planet of New Orleans

Now I'm tryin' to find my way
Through the rain and the steam
I'm lookin' straight ahead through the screen
And then I heard her say
Somethin' in the limousine
'bout taking a ride across the planet of New Orleans

If she was an ace
And I was just a jack
And the cards were never seen
We could have been the king and the queen
But she took me back to her courtyard
Where magnolia perfume screams
Behind the gates and the granite
Of the planet of New Orleans

    .... If she was an ace and I was just a jack and the cards were never seen
    we could have been the king and queen
    but she took me back to her courtyard where magnolia perfume screams
    behind the gates and the granite of the planet of New Orleans.....

    Mark Knopfler is not only a legendary guitarist but also a rafined poet and sublime songwriter. Masterpiece.

    Some relaxing Time with the Straits😎😎😎😎

  8. PutItAway101

    When the Korg Wavestation starts playing that sequence at 0:57 it's officially the 90s

  9. Vagelis Komninos

    No words can describe this masterpiece. Hush....shhshshsh.....and listen....

  10. ANGELO GRIDI

    Ultimo album dei grandi dire straits

  11. Dan MusicRoom

    ,This song is just night

  12. win andromeda

    The live's versions is better than this....

  13. Bhaskar Ganguly

    Oh God what a song..and what guitars!..he makes me cry with the sheer poetry in his song..and the magic that he never fails to create.. live forever Mark..

  14. JeanLafitte

    They build NASA's humongous Space Launch System on the outskirts of the Big Easy. If NASA ever wants to get serious about commercial space flight, it's a 30 min drive to where they test the SLS main stage engines. A little more build-out there, and it'll be the New Orleans Regional Spaceport.

  15. Deep Sharma

    This track takes you to a different dimension, not just a planet.

  16. pulchralutetia

    Soaring guitar and saxophone. Yum.

  17. Lalith Vithana

    the knopf is god

  18. Michael Baucom

    The best song from the " On Every Street" album, to me, it is the unofficial goodbye song of Dire Straits, this song fits easily on any of Knopfler's solo albums, a gorgeous blues/jazz song, with a touch of country( the pedal steel guitar in the background), genius.

  19. John Silver

    Cette chanson est vraiment incroyable ! Cela faisait longtemps que je ne l'avais pas écoutée !

    Lamine Galou

    Je l avais écouté à la sortie de l album....plus de vingt ans après j ai repris goût et je l écoute en boucle dans ma voiture en rentrant chez moi après une journée de boulot épuisante...

  20. Zeb Callahan

    Damn me! This is just so dreamy! Im lost for words...

    Ricardo Ellison

    Just try to imagine how New Orleans might be?...it has a one-of-a-kind magic to the place...give yourself a couple of weeks, a place to stay & a wad of cash...you might not ever leave...

  21. j squires

    "Knopfler the Great" declared by me...on planet earth!

  22. Santino GRAPHIC

    SUBLIME IS THE BEST GOO.............

  23. Максим Максимов

    Марк - это шедевр!

  24. Рысец Обыкновенный

    Makes me want to visit US... nah, every Dire Strats' song makes me want to do it!

  25. JockBaloney

    Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits have really managed to capture that true essence of New Orleans where the 'Je Ne Sais Quoi' collides and mashes up with the 'Laissez Les Bon Temps Roullez' that are the quintessential and inexplicable mixed up and oh so mysterious and dangerous cocktail of Voodoo and Mardi Gras that are endemic to the New Orleans experience! Very nice - and intriguing - indeed!

  26. Экостудия Лис

    Добавлю в комменты русский язык... Лучшее, что я слышала.

  27. Rubino Pride

    Knophler depicts greatness

  48. KingSams0n

    8 years old, sneaking down to my dad's CD sideboard, trying to find the one song he played me when I was even younger. Then I found "On every Street" and it's solo in the end...Planet of New Orleans had to grow on me tho, now it is my absolute favourite Dire Straits song. So timeless...thanks Dad!

    MAK Ousaad

    It was such a brilliant song when it was released then Mark played it live and it became phenomenal with its stunning solo... One of my favourite DS songs forever!
