We’re sure Lucinda Williams’ song “Crescent City” is a common life story–no matter where you are from. In “Crescent City,” Williams leaves the place she lives so that she can:

hear my Zydeco and Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez/And take rides in open cars/My brother knows where the best bars are/Let’s see how these blues’ll do in the town where the good times stay/Tu Le Ton Son Ton that’s all we say/We used to dance the night away
