    Lyrics

    Won't you come and go with me
    Down that Mississippi?
    We'll take a boat to the land of dreams
    Come along with me on down to New Orleans

    Now the band's there to greet us
    Old friends will meet us
    Where all them folks goin' to the St. Louis cemetery meet
    Heaven on earth, they call it Basin Street

    I'm tellin' ya Basin Street is the street
    Where all them characters from the first street they meet
    New Orleans, land of dreams
    You'll never miss them rice and beans
    Way down south in New Orleans

    They'll be huggin' and a kissin'
    That's what I been missin'
    And all that music, Lord, if you just listen'
    New Orleans, I got them Basin Street blues

    Now ain't you glad you went with me
    On down that Mississippi?
    We took a boat to the land of dreams
    Heaven on earth, they call it Basin Street
