    Lyrics

    I hate's to see dat ev'nin' sun go down
    Hate's to see dat ev'nin' sun go down
    Cause ma baby, she done lef' dis town
    If I feel tomorrow lak ah feel today
    Feel tomorrow lak ah feel today
    I'll pack up my trunk, and make ma git away

    Saint Louis woman wid her diamon' rings
    Pulls dat man 'roun' by her apron strings
    'Twern't for powder an' her store-bought hair
    De man she love wouldn't gone nowhere, nowhere

    Got dem Saint Louis Blues I'm as blue as ah can be
    Like a man done throwed that rock down into de sea
    Got dem Saint Louis Blues I'm as blue as ah can be

    Went to de gypsy get her fortune tole
    To de gypsy, done got her fortune tole
    Cause she most wile 'bout her Jelly Roll
    Now dat gypsy tole her, "Don't you wear no black"
    She done tole her, "Don't you wear no black
    Go to Saint Louis, you can win him back"

    If she git toCairo, make Saint Louis by herself
    Git to Cairo, find her old friend Jeff
    gwine to pin herself, right there, to his side If she flag his train, she sho' can ride

    And she sang

    Got dem Saint Louis Blues jes as blue as ah can be
    Dat man got a heart lak a rock cast into de sea
    Or else he wouldn't have gone so far from me
    Doggone it!
    I loves day man lak a schoolboy loves his pie
    Lak a Kentucky Col'nel loves his mint an' rye
    I'll love ma baby till the day ah die

    Now a black-headed gal makes a freight train jump the track
    Said a black-headed gal makes a freight train jump the track
    But a long tall gal makes a preacher ball the jack

    Lawd, a blonde-headed woman make a good man leave the town
    I said a blonde-headed woman make a good man leave the town
    But a red-headed woman make a boy slap his pappy down
