Basin Street Blues
Won't you come along with me

To the Mississippi

We'll take the boat to the land of dreams

Steam down the river down to New Orleans



The band's there to meet us

And old friends to greet us

Where all the people always meet

Heaven on earth they call it Basin Street



Basin Street is the street

Where the elite always meet

In New Orleans the land of dreams

You'll never know how nice it seems or just how much it really means



Glad to be oh yessiree

Where welcome's free are dear to me

Where I can lose

My Basin Street blues



Glad to be oh yessiree

Where welcome's free are dear to me

Where I can lose

My Basin Street blues



Ain't you glad you came with me

Way down to the Mississippi

We took the boat to the land of dreams

Steam down the river to New Orleans
