"St. Louis Blues" as written by and William C Handy....
I hate to see that evening sun go down
Well I hate to see that evening sun go down
That girl of mine, she's done left this town

If I'm feelin' tomorrow like I feel today
If I'm feelin' tomorrow just like I feel today
Gonna pack my bag and make my getaway

St. Louis woman with her diamond ring
Pulls that man around by her heap and string
If it wasn't for powder and that store bought hair
That woman I love she wouldn't have gone nowhere
Nowhere

I've got the St. Louie blues, I'm blue as I can be
That woman got a heart like a rock cast in the sea
Hell she'd wouldn't have left me, gone so far from me

Shes a mean little girl, don't mean no one man no good
Shes a mean little girl, don't mean no one man no good
Well all the woman do is disturb peace in the neighborhood

I love that girl, there's nothing I can say
I love that girl, there's nothing I can say
Well she took all my money, now my house rents due today

St. Louis woman, what are you doing to me
Yeah St. Louis woman, what are you doing to me
I believed my soul, try to voodoo me
