I hate to see de ev' nin' sun go down
Hate to see de ev' nin' sun go down
Cause my ba -by, he done lef dis town
Saint Lou -is wo -man Wid her dia -mon' rings
Pulls dat man roun' by her a -pron strings
'Twant for pow -der an' for store bought hair
De man I love would not gone no -where
Got de Saint Lou -is Blues jes as blue as Ah can be
Dat man got a heart lak a rock cast in the sea
Or else he would -n't have gone so far from me
(repeat chorus)
