Louie, Louie, Louie, Louie

Countrymen, friends, lend me your ears
I'll tell you a tale of 15 years
I'm an ole man and so far gone
I want to see the city where I was born

I've got a feelin' that I can't stand
I want to go back to my home land
Ain't got the money, I ain't got the cents
I can't get on that train, oh help me

Show me the way to St. Louis, show me the way
Show me the way to St. Louis, show me the way
Come on people, gotta get movin', can't stop now
I've gotta keep movin', show me the way to St. Louis
Show me the way

Step up to me, you city kids
I'll shine your shoes for 15 cents
I'll fix your tie, you'll learn to stretch
If you don't mind, I'll take cash

Soon, I'll get the money and I'll feel fine
I pack my bags and drink my wine
I only know, I got to go home
Good Lord told me so, so help me

Show me the way to St. Louis, show me the way
Show me the way to St. Louis, show me the way
Come on people, gotta get movin', can't stop now
I've gotta keep movin', show me the way to St. Louis
Show me the way

Which train goes to St. Louis? You know my heart is there
I know my time's goin' fast, got to try to raise the fare
Come on people, gotta get movin', can't stop now
I've gotta keep movin'

Show me the way to St. Louis, show me the way
Louie, Louie, Louie, Louie
Show me the way to St. Louis, show me the way
Show me the way to St. Louis, show me the way
(I wanna go home)

Show me the way to St. Louis, show me the way
Show me the way to St. Louis, show me the way
(Show me the way)
Show me the way to St. Louis
