Beale Street Blues (Nat King Cole)

If Beale Street could talk 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 Who sings the 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 gonna take the 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 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 Because the river's wet And Beale Street's done gone dry
