Basin Street Blues Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
Glad to be oh yessiree
Where welcome's free are dear to me
Where I can lose
My Basin Street blues
Verse 5
Glad to be oh yessiree
Where welcome's free are dear to me
Where I can lose
My Basin Street blues
Verse 6
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
