OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Won't you come along with me, down to Mississippi
We'll take the boat to the land of dreams
Steam down the river, down to New Orleans

Four ladies promenade inside, get back home and swing awhile
Now promenade, yes sir'ee, to where I can lose my Basin Street Blues


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade half way around
Come down the middle pass the ocean somehow
Extend, swing thru now spin the top
And do a right and left thru
Square thru 3, 3 hands around
Swing the corner, promenade on down
Down the river, down to New Orleans


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Four ladies chain across the ring
Now chain 'em right back home I sing
Join all your hands, circle left
Left allemande the corner gonna weave that old set
Weave in and out you go, swing the lady there you know
Now promenade, yes sir'ee, to where I can lose my Basin Street Blues


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
The band is there to meet us, and old friends to greet us
Where all the rich and poor folks meet heaven on earth
They call it Basin Street

Four men promenade inside, get back home and swing awhile
Now promenade, yes sir'ee, to where I can lose my Basin Street Blues
(swing her!)

Basin Street Blues
 
 

Won't you come and go with me
Down that Mississippi
We'll take a boat to the land of dreams
Come along with me on, down to New Orleans

Now the band's there to greet us
Old friends will meet us
Where all them folks goin' to the St. Louis Cemetery meet
Heaven on earth... they call it Basin Street

I'm tellin' ya, Basin Street... is the street
Where all them characters from the First street they meet
New Orleans... land of dreams
You'll never miss them rice and beans
Way down south in New Orleans

They'll be huggin'... and a kissin'
That's what I been missin'
And all that music...lord, if you just listen'
New Orleans...I got them Basin Street Blues

Now ain't you glad you went with me
On down that Mississippi
We took a boat to the land of dreams
Heaven on earth...they call it Basin Street

Lyrics by Spencer Williams.
Recorded by Louis Armstrong (1928).
