Limehouse Blues Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
And those weird China blues
Never go away
Sad, mad blues
For all the while they seem to say
Verse 2
Oh, Limehouse kid
Oh, oh, Limehouse kid
Goin' the way
That the rest of them did
Poor broken blossom
And nobody's child
Haunting and taunting
You're just kind of wild
Verse 3
Oh, Limehouse blues
I've the real Limehouse blues
Can't seem to shake off
Those real China blues
Rings on your fingers
And tears for your crown
That is the story
Of old Chinatown
Verse 4
Rings on your fingers
And tears for your crown
That is the story
Of old Chinatown
