magnolia lyrics – jj cale

whippoorwill’s singing
soft summer breeze
makes me think of my baby
i left down in new orleans
i left down in new orleans

magnolia, you sweet thing
you’re driving me mad
got to get back to you, babe
you’re the best i ever had
you’re the best i ever had

you whisper “good morning”
so gently in my ear
i’m coming home to you, babe
i’ll soon be there
i’ll soon be there
