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
