Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Won't you come and go with me
Down that Mississippi
We'll take a boat to the land of dreams
Come along with me on, down to New Orleans
Verse 2
Now the band's there to greet us
Old friends will meet us
Where all them folks goin to the St. Louis cemetery meet
Heaven on earth, they call it basin street
Verse 3
I'm tellin' ya, basin street, is the street
Where all them characters from the first street they meet
New Orleans, land of dreams
You'll never miss them rice and beans
Way down south in new orleans
Verse 4
They'll be huggin', and a kissin'
That's what I been missin'
And all that music, lord, if you just listen'
New Orleans, I got them basin street blues
Verse 5
Now ain't you glad you went with me
On down that Mississippi
We took a boat to the land of dreams
Heaven on earth, they call it basin street
