Billie Holiday - "St Louis Blues" lyrics

W.c. handy

I hate to see that evening sun go down

I hate to see that evening sun go down

cause, my baby, hes gone left this town

Fellin tomorrow like I feel today

If Im feelin tomorrow like I feel today

Ill pack my truck and make my give-a-way

St. louis woman with her diamond ring

Pulls that man around by her

If it wasnt for her and her

That man I love would have gone nowhere, nowhere

I got the st. louis blues

Blues as I can be

That mans got a heart like a rock cast in the sea

Or else he wouldnt have gone so far from me

I love my baby like a school boy loves his pie

Like a kentucky colonel loves his mintn rye

I love my man till the day I die
