Rampart Street

Auld Sweet Olive Bed & Breakfast

Not only is our street the coolest in town, it has been cool for a long, long time. Check out these song lyrics, going back to the 1920's...

I've Got The Blues For Rampart Street - Ida Cox

Rampart Street in New Orleans town

Tell everyone for miles around

For Creole music, and new jazz bands

That's the best spot in all the land

In most every cabaret

They play night into day

I'm blue from my hair down to my feet

For dear old Rampart Street

Right Off Rampart Street - Chuck Berry

Way down south in Louisiana, up under the Delta heat, child

There's an old boy plays an electric guitar right off Rampart Street

Sometimes a Go-G0 girl come in with him, she be shakin' out a Mojo beat

That old boy sure pick some old mean guitar right off Rampart Street

Saturday Night Fish Fry - Louis Jordan

Now if you're ever been down to New Orleans

Then you can understand just what I mean ...

So if you happen to be just passin' by

Stop in at the Saturday Night Fish Fry

Now my buddy and me was on the main stem

Foolin' around just me and him

We decided we could use a little something to eat

So we went to a house on Rampart Street

We knocked on the door and it opened up with ease

And a lush little miss said, "Come in, please"

And before we could even bat an eye

We were right in the middle of a big fish fry

It was rockin', it was rockin'

You never seen such scufflin'

And shufflin' 'til the break of dawn
