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

Songwriters
HANDY, WILLIAM CHRISTOPHER / HENDERSON, LUTHER
