Basin street blues






Won't-cha come with me

To the Mississippi

Wee'll take the boat  to the land of dreams

Steam down the river

down to New Orleans

The band's there to meet us

Old friends to greet us

Where all the light and the dark folk meet

This is Basin Street

Basin Street

is the street

Where the elite

Always meet in

New Orleans

Land of dreams

You'll never know how nice it seems

or how much it really means

Glad to be

Yes sir-ee where welcome's free

Dear to me

Where I can lose

My Basin Street Blues
