Armstrong, Louis - Saint Louis Blues Lyrics

I hate to see that evening sun go down
I hate to see that evening sun go down
'Cause my lovin' baby done left this town

If I feel tomorrow like I feel today
If I feel tomorrow like I feel today
I'm gonna pack my trunk and make my getaway

Oh, that St. Louis woman with her diamond rings
She pulls my man around by her apron strings
And if it wasn't for powder and her store-bought hair
Oh, that man of mine wouldn't go nowhere

I got those St. Louis blues, just as blue as I can be
Oh, my man's got a heart like a rock cast in the sea
Or else he wouldn't have gone so far from me

I love my man like a schoolboy loves his pie
Like a Kentucky colonel loves his rocker and rye
I'll love my man until the day I die, Lord, Lord

I got the St. Louis blues, just as blue as I can be, Lord, Lord
That man's got a heart like a rock cast in the sea
Or else he wouldn't have gone so far from me

I got those St. Louis blues
I got the blues, I got the blues, I got the blues
My man's got a heart like a rock cast in the sea
Or else he wouldn't have gone so far from me, Lord, Lord

    Uri Greenberg

    People dont come here to talk about hockey this is the best trumpeter in history of mankind.....


    @Uri Greenberg I dont know Clifford Brown and Dizzy are both better to me but Satchmo is arguably the most important figure in the genre overall and did basically reinvent jazz in a number of ways, his impact cannot be understated so he has to be in the top 3

    Uri Greenberg

    @Kevin i agree that all of those are amazing musicians but in my opinion Louis is the best

  44. GEO

    There was a place down by the Eads Bridge where you could get a shoeshine and pick up the racing form before going to the track at Fairmont Park. There was a speakeasy across the street. There was a door down to it between the pawnshop and the butcher shop, the door was open on warm nights. And from that stairway going down came this music that got you jumping and jiving, and that horn of Satchmo’s would make your heart take wings and fly! Lord! Saint Louis was a great place then...

  45. Insert Redletter Media Meme Here

    Oh my god did Louis just say he was going to beat a woman with a piece of a fence!!!!!!!!!??????! #metoo!!!!! He should apologize posthumously!!!

  47. Marilyn Stevenson

  48. Marilyn Stevenson

    Oh Louis!!! I grew up with matter what age, you were the most talented.. the best!! I saw Louis and the Allstars, with Velma Middleton when I was 5 years old, with my parents and little sister, in 1954 at the Stadium at Rushcutter's Bay, In Sydney! It was an old boxing venue!! My dad, a muso, met some of the Allstars at the Muso''s Club the night before!! I had a wonderful crush on Trummy Young...guess who still has his autograph! As they were about to go onstage, Trummy saw dad, and bent over, and said to me ""are you girls having a good time""...Yes, I would never forget his lovely face and words!! Velma came on..and Mum called out for ""More!!"So, naturally, I jumped up and called out for More!! A Night to Remember!!!

  49. Waixler83

    We have to sing this in music class. Alone. In front of the whole class...

    Marilyn Stevenson

    Go!! Waixler83!!! You are in good hands...

    Nice song this is the true music it's sad that people don't do music

  52. arrascaeta dora

    En pinta me gusta más bien me vieran generosa en carnes,bien definida cintura y cadera,de ninguna manera por ello pesada y menos chica de divito.
    Linda,bailarina ,para nada magra en carnes, sonriente,alegre, inteligente, pero ni en broma pelotuda.
    Es decir bien sería y pensante.

    Son ideales,
    como cualquiera los tiene.

  53. arrascaeta dora

    De Edith Piaf, por poner un ejemplo,aprecio valor de voz,canciones pero en lo personal no me gusta.
    A de ser por su vida desgraciada o porque alguna vez me compararon con ella y nadie crea fue por la voz sino más bien por la pinta o ni idea.

  54. arrascaeta dora

    De a poco me ido dando cuenta de una verdad :

    Soy bastante hedionda,jedionda,en olfato musical.
    Lo que me gusta me gusta y lo que no, pues no.

  55. Tishnik

    Why cant the st.louis blues (the hockey team) have this as their goal song?

    ben squires

    The radio broadcast plays it at the start of their broadcast for every game


    @ben squires I see, But they should play it for their goal horn.
    Also i hope the blues win game 7 vs the dallas star!

  56. George Wardy

    Wonderful could listen to this all night: Super and amazing.

    Y aún así es,me parece, maravillosa.

    Gracias a todos los santos viví para disfrutar de esto.
