Beale Street Blues

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the album Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Rodgers & Hart Songbook (1956) and on the compilation album Jukebox Ella: The Complete Verve Singles, Volume 1 (2003).

The seven wonders of the world I've seen
And many are the places I have been
Take my advice, folks, and see Beale Street first

If Beale Street could talk, if Beale Street could talk
Married men would have to take their beds and walk
Except one or two who never drink booze
And the blind man on the corner singing "Beale Street Blues!"

I'd rather be here than any place I know
I'd rather be here than any place I know
It's going to take a sergeant for to make me go

Goin' to the river, maybe by and by
Goin' to the river, and there's a reason why
Because the river's wet, and Beale Street's done gone dry
Because the river's wet, and Beale Street's done gone dry
