Asleep At The Wheel
"Basin Street Blues" lyrics

Basin Street Blues

Won't you come along with me
To the Mississippi?
We'll take a boat to the land of dreams
Steam down the river down to New Orleans

The band's there to meet us
Old friends to greet us
Where all the light
And the dark folks 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
Yes siree
Where welcome's free
Are dear to me
Where I can lose
Those, oh, Basin Street blues

Now ain't you glad you came with me
To the Mississippi?
We'll take a boat to the land of dreams
Steam down the river down to New Orleans

The band was there to meet us
Old friends to greet us
Where all the light
And the dark folks 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
Yes siree
Where welcome's free
Are dear to me
Where I can lose
My Basin Street blues
