This song is about missing New Orleans, and feeling literally thousands of miles away from home.


A thousand miles...away from home.
Living in the rain.
A thousand miles...away from home.
Waiting...for a change.
Nobody seems to want me...
Or, lend me a helping hand.
A thousand miles...away from home.
If I ever get home again...

You can take the man out of New Orleans, but
You can't take the New Orleans out of the man.
Life has taken me all over the world...including a stint living in New Zealand.
Some may know me as Matt Martin...
You may have known me by my past and present musical works:
Amerigo, World Leader Pretend, Andy Wagner, Theresa Andersson, Steve Eck, Rachel Ries, and Still Machine.
