Basin Street Blues Lyrics

Basin Street Blues - Ella Fitzgerald/Sy Oliver & His Orchestra

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 there to greet us


Where all the proud and elite folks meet


Heaven on earth they call it Basin Street


Basin Street is the street

Where the best folks always meet


In New Orleans land of dreams

You'll never know how nice it seems

Or just how much it really means

Glad to be oh yes-siree


Where welcome's free and dear to me

Where I can lose lose my Basin Street blues


Basin Street oh Basin Street


Is the street mama



New Orleans land of dreams
