There was a place in East St. Louis, it was in
Nineteen fifty nine, when they played they filled
The streets with music, that lonely blue note music
That takes your cares away, far away

They packed the place when the band was playin'
To get some joy from a smoke filled room, through that door
You could see the bodies swayin', the blue note band
Was playin' some lonely blue note song all night long

Oh, it carried me away, oh carried me away
Oh, it carried me away, oh carried me away
No place I'd rather stay

If you should ever make it to St. Louis on some hot
And lonely night, if you listen you can hear
That blue note music, they fill the streets with music
It carries you away, far away

Oh, it carried me away, oh carried me away
Oh, it carried me away, oh carried me away
No place I'd rather stay
