Lyrics

Oh, I hate to see that evening sun go down
I hate to see that evening sun go down
Just because my baby, he has gone and left this town

If I’m feeling tomorrow just like I did today
If I’m feeling tomorrow just like I did today
I’m gonna pack my trunk and I’m gonna make my get away

St. Louis woman, with all her diamond rings
Pulled that man around by her apron strings
If it wasn't for her powder or for her store bought hair
That man I love , he wouldn't have gone nowhere, no where

I got the St. Louis Blues, just as blue as I can be (hear me crying I got the blues)
Got the blues, St. Louis Blues, blue as I can be
My man’s got a heart ooo like a rock cast in the sea

Say, if you don’t like whiskey, well then you might as well get used to wine (‘cause wine is fine)
If you don’t like whiskey, well then you might as well get used to wine (‘cause wine is fine)
‘Cause that man he left me with that wine and I felt mellow and fine
I got the St. Louis, I got the blues, St. Louis Blues
I got the blues, got the St. Louis Blues
You hear me talking baby, I been crying about this St. Louis Blues
