Nat King Cole — Beale Street Blues lyrics

If Beale Street could talk
Beale Street could talk
Married men would have to
Take their be-eds and walk
Except one or two
Who never drink booze
And the blind man on the corner
Who-oo sings the Beale Street Blues
I'd rather be here
Than any pla-ace I know
I'd rather be here
Than any place I know-ow
It's gonna take the sergeant
For to make me go
Goin' to the river
Maybe by-y and by
Goin' to the river
And there's a reason why
Because the river's wet
And Beale Street's done gone dry
Goin' to the river
Maybe by-y and by
Goin' to the river
And there's a rea-eason 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
Because the river's wet
And Beale Street's do-one go-one dry...
