Lyrics: "St. Louis woman, with her diamond rings,
Pulls that man around by her apron strings.
Twasn't for powder and her store-bought hair,
The girl I love wouldn't go nowhere.

Got those St. Louis blues, just as blue as I can be,
That gal got a heart like a rock cast in the sea,
Or else she wouldn't have gone so far from me.

I love that gal like a schoolboy loves his pie,
Like a Kentucky colonel loves his mint and rye
I'll love my baby until the day I die"
