St. Louis Blues
by Jimmy Reed



I hate to see that ev'nin' sun go down
I hate to see that ev'nin' sun go down
'Cause the woman I love man, she done blown this town

If I'm feelin' tomorrow, like I'm feelin' today
If I'm feelin' tomorrow, like I'm feelin' today
I'm gonna pack my bags an' make my get-a-way

St. Louie woman, with her diamond ring
Leads the man around by her apron strings
If it wasn't for powder and that store bought hair
That woman of mine wouldn't have gone nowhere
Nowhere

I've got the St. Louie blues, I'm blue as I can be
That woman of mine got a heart like a rock in the sea
If she'd a been all right she wouldn't have gone so far from me
