Naptown Blues

This song is by Leroy Carr and appears on the compilation album Leroy Carr Vol. 2 (1929-1930) (1992).

Nobody knows old Naptown, baby like I do
Nobody knows old Naptown, baby like I do
If you will stop and listen, I will tell you a thing or two

When you get lonesome, and want to have some fun
When you get lonesome, and want to have some fun
You just grab a train, and try old Naptown some

When you get to Naptown, the blues won't last very long
When you get to Naptown, the blues won't last very long
Because they have their pleasure, and they sure do carry on

I would rather be in Naptown, than any place I know
I would rather be in Naptown, than any place I know
I can get me a ticket, and stop by the *Walter* show

I'm going back to Naptown, baby don't you want to go
I'm going back to Naptown, baby don't you want to go
Because there ain't nobody, knows old Naptown like I know
