Won't you come along with me

Down that Mis - sis - sip - pi;

C            C7           F       Fm
We'll take a boat to the land of dreams,

C     G/B       Am7  Bb9     G7     C    G
Steam down the river down to New Orleans.

    C      G7       Cdim  C     C Dm7 Cdim C
The band's there to greet us,

C     C7          G7   G7+5      C    Bb  G7+5

You'll never know how nice it seems

Or just how much it really means.

C      C/B   E7
Glad to be, yessiree,

Where welcomes free, dear to me,

      F      Dm7 G7   G7/6  G7  G7/6    C    C  F Fm Bb9  C
Where I can lose    my Ba - sin Street Blues.
