Album Blueberry Hill. Basin Street Blues Lyrics. Now won't you come along with me To the Mississippi? We'll take a trip to the land of dreams Blowing down the river, down to New Orleans. The band is there to meet us Old friends to greet us That's where the line and the dark folks meet A heaven on earth, they call it Basin Street. I said, Basin Street, Basin Street Where the elite always meet Down in New Orleans, the land of dreams You'll never know how nice it seems.
