St. Louis Blues
I hate to see that evening sun go down I hate to see that evening sun go down 'Cause my baby, he's gone left this town Feelin' tomorrow like I feel today If I'm feelin' tomorrow like I feel today I'll pack my truck and make my give-a-way St. Louis woman with her diamond rings Pull that man around by her apron strings 'Twant for powder an' for store-bought hair The man I love would not gone nowhere, Got the Saint Louis blues, blue as I can be That man got a heart like a rock cast in the sea Or else he wouldn't have gone so far from me I love that man like a schoolboy loves his pie Like a Kentucky Colonel loves his Pimm an' rye I love my baby till the day I die Said I'm going away and it won't be long Said I'm going away and it won't be long You don't think I'm going? Count the days I'm gone Got the Saint Louis blues, just the blue as I can be That man got a heart like a rock cast in the sea Or else he wouldn't have gone so far from me, so far from me
