Lyrics Basin Street Blues

Won't you come along with me to the Mississippi
We'll take a boat to the land of dreams
Steam down the river down to New Orleans
The band's there to meet us old friends there to greet us
Where all the proud and elite folks meet
Heaven on earth they call it Basin Street
Basin Street is the street where the best folks always meet
In New Orleans land of dreams you'll never know how nice it seems or just how much it really means
Glad to be, oh yes siree where welcome's free
And dear to me where I can lose
Lose my Basin Street Blues
Basin Street, oh Basin Street is the street mama where the folks on me
New Orleans land of dreams bah bah bah bah bah dooh deh
Bah bah dooh bah bah dooh beh dooh dah
Oh mama, oh land of dream bah beh zooh zeh dow
We never know how nice it seems
So I can lose babe oh nah nah the Basin Street Blues, yeah
