st.louis blues lyrics – billie holiday

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

fellin’ tomorrow like i feel today
if i’m feelin’ tomorrow like i feel today
i’ll pack my truck and make my get away

st. louis woman with her diamond ring
pulls that man around by her apr*n string
if it wasn’t for powder and her [incomprehensible] hair
that man i love wouldn’t have gone nowhere, nowhere

i got the st. louis blues, blue as i can be
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 love my man like a school boy loves his pie
like a kentucky colonel loves his mintn rye
i love my baby till the day i die
