Billie Holiday – Farewell To Storyville lyrics
Clarence Williams

All, you old-time queens, from New Orleans, who lived in Storyville
You sang the blues, try to amuse, here's how they pay the bill
The law step-in and call it sin to have a little fun
The police car has made a stop and Storyville is done
Pick out your steamboat, pick yourself a train
- a slo-ow train
Pick out your steamboat, pick yourself a train
- a slo-ow train
They made you close-up they'll never let you back
- won't let you back
Go buy your ticket or else you walk the track

No use complaining, blue sky's folow rain
- the cold-old rain
No use complaining, blue sky's folow rain
- the cold-old rain
Just say farewell now and get your one last thrill
- your one last thrill
Just say farewell now, farewell to Storyville

No use complaining, blue sky's folow rain
- the cold-old rain
Just say farewell now, farewell to Storyville

Just say farewell now and get your one last thrill
- your one last thrill
Just say farewell now, farewell to Storyville
