St. Louis Blues

This song is by George Thorogood & The Destroyers, features Johnnie Johnson and appears on the live album Live: Let's Work Together (1995).

It gives me great pride
In announcing that
We're gonna have a young man
Makin' a big name for himself
In the world of blues and the rock 'n' roll
He's one of your own
And he helped shape the way of rock 'n' roll
As we know it
Mr. Johnnie Johnson

Well
A great
A great city and a great man
Deserve to have a song written after'em
St. Louis Blues

I hate to see that evenin' sun go down
I hate to see that evenin' sun go down
Because the woman I'm lovin'
Man, she done blow'd this town

If I feel tomorrow like I feel today
If I feel tomorrow like I feel today
I'm gonna pack my things
And make my get away

St. Louis woman
With a diamond ring
Needs a man around
By her apron string

If it wasn't for powder
And store-bought hair
That woman I'm lovin'
Wouldn't wear no ??

No, well,
I got the St. Louis blues
I'm blue as I can be
Because the woman I love
Got a heart like a rockin' machine
If she'd a been alright
She wouldn't a gone so far from me
I hear ya!

St. Louis woman
With a diamond ring
Needs a man around
By her apron string

If it wasn't for powder
And store-bought hair
That woman I'm lovin'
Wouldn't wear no ??

No, well,
I got the St. Louis blues
I'm blue as I can be
Because the woman I love
Got a heart like a rockin' machine
If she'd a been alright
She wouldn't a gone so far from me
