    "Basin Street Blues" Lyrics

    Julie London

    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-sirree
    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
