Well I hate to see that evening sun going down
I hate to see uh that evening sun going down
That good gal of mine she done up and left this town all right

Well I got the St Louis Blues just as blue as I can be
Oh that woman’s got a heart like a rock in the deep blue sea
Or else she would not she would not have gone so far from me

St Louis woman with all your diamond ring
You lead a good man every hour by your apron strings
Well now if it’s not for the powder all that store bought hair
And then woman you know you would not go nowhere nowhere

Well I got the St Louis Blues…

[ guitar ]
Yeah I’m feeling tomorrow just like I feel today
Yeah if I’m feeling tomorrow just like I feel today
Then I’m gonna pack up all my bag pack my bag and make my getaway

Well I got the St Louis Blues…
