Como Swings - St. Louis Blues lyrics

I hate to see, that evenin' sun go down!
I hate to see, that evenin' sun go down!
'cause my baby, gone and left this town!

Feelin' tomorrow, just like i feel today,
If i'm feelin' tomorrow, just like i feel today,
I'll pack my trunk, and make my get-away!

I went to the gypsy, to get my fortune told,
Yes, i went to the gypsy, to get my fortune told,
I asked the gypsy, "what does the future hold?"

Gypsy told me, "don't you wear no black!"
Hmmm! the gypsy told me, "don't you wear no black!" ( no black! )
"go to st. louis, and you can win her back!"

St. louis woman, with her diamond rings,
Pulls this man around by her apron strings,

If it wasn't for powder and for store-bought hair,
That gal i love wouldn't h've gone nowhere, nowhere!

I got the st. louis blues, just as blue as i can be,
'cause that gal's got a heart, like a rock cast in the sea,
Or else she wouldn't have gone so far from me!

I love that gal like a school boy loves his pie,
Like a kentucky colonel loves his mint an' his rye,
I love that gal, yes i love that gal,
Yes, i love that gal . . .
Until . . . the day . . . i die!
