Basin Street Blues
Willie Nelson

Basin Street Blues

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

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

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
Oh, yessiree
Where welcome's free
Are dear to me
Where I can lose
My Basin Street blues

Glad to be
Oh, yessiree
Where welcome's free
Are dear to me
Where I can lose
My Basin Street blues

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
