I hate to see the evening sun go down
I hate to see the evening sun go down
It makes me think I'm on my last go 'round

Feeling tomorrow like I feel today
Feeling tomorrow like I feel today
I'll pack my grip & make my getaway

St Louis woman wears a diamond ring
Pulls my man around by her apron strings
Wasn't for powder & this store-bought hair
The man I love wouldn't go nowhere - nowhere

I've got them St Louis blues just as blue as I can be
He's got a heart like a rock cast in the sea
Or else he would not go so far from me
