saint louis blues lyrics – louis armstrong

saint louis blues

i hate to see that evening sun go down
i hate to see that evening sun go down
’cause my lovin’ baby done left this town

if i feel tomorrow like i feel today
if i feel tomorrow like i feel today
i’m gonna pack my trunk and make my getaway

oh, that st. louis woman with her diamond rings
she pulls my man around by her apr*n strings
and if it wasn’t for powder and her store-bought hair
oh, that man of mine wouldn’t go nowhere

i got those st. louis blues, just as blue as i can be
oh, my man’s got a heart like a rock cast in the sea
or else he wouldn’t have gone so far from me

i love my man like a schoolboy loves his pie
like a kentucky colonel loves his rocker and rye
i’ll love my man until the day i die, lord, lord

i got the st. louis blues, just as blue as i can be, lord, lord
that man’s got a heart like a rock cast in the sea
or else he wouldn’t have gone so far from me

i got those st. louis blues
i got the blues, i got the blues, i got the blues
my man’s got a heart like a rock cast in the sea
or else he wouldn’t have gone so far from me, lord, lord
