Como Swings original album
 
St. Louis Blues
 
I hate to see, that evenin' sun go down!
I hate to see, that evenin' sun go down!
'Cause my baby,
gone and left this town!
 
Feelin' tomorrow, just like I feel today,
If I'm feelin' tomorrow, just like I feel today,
I'll pack my trunk,
and make my get-away!
 
I went to the Gypsy, to get my fortune told, 
Yes, I went to the Gypsy, to get my fortune told,
I asked the Gypsy,
"What does the future hold?"
 
Gypsy told me, "Don't you wear no black!"
Hmmm! The Gypsy told me,
"Don't you wear no black!" ( No black! )
"Go to St. Louis, and you can win her back!"
 
St. Louis woman, with her diamond rings,
Pulls this man around by her apron strings,
If it wasn't for powder and for store-bought hair,
That gal I love wouldn't h've gone nowhere, nowhere!
I got the St. Louis Blues, just as blue as I can be,
'Cause that gal's got a heart, like a rock cast in the sea,
Or else she wouldn't have gone so far from me!
I love that gal like a school boy loves his pie,
Like a Kentucky Colonel loves his mint an' his rye,
I love that gal, yes I love that gal,
Yes, I love that gal . . .
Until  . . . the day . . . I die!
