Cher's, "Dark Lady"
The Lyrics:
The fortune queen of New Orleans Was brushing her cat in her black limousine On the backseat were scratches from The marks of men her fortune she had won Couldn't see through the tinted glass She said "Home James" and he hit the gas I followed her to some darkened room, She took my money, she said "I'll be with you soon"
"Dark Lady" was a #1 hit song for Cher back in 1974. The opening verse I posted above has a shoutout to New Orleans, a real place.

Cher's, "Gypsies, Tramps, And Thieves"
The Lyrics:
Picked up a boy just south of Mobile,
Gave him a ride, filled him with a hot meal.
I was sixteen; he was twenty-one,
He rode with us to Memphis.
Refers to the cities of Mobile, Alabama and Memphis, Tennessee.
