F/C Cadd2 Cadd2add4 Old Beale street is coming down
Bb/Eb Sweetie's snack bar boarded up know
Gm9 And there goes the tailor, and the shine boy's gone
Gm9 Faded out with rag time blues
F/C Cadd2 Handy's cast in bronze
Cadd2add4 Bb/Eb And he's standing in a little park
Gm9 with his trumpet in his hand like he's listening back
to the good old days, and the kick of high-heeled shoes
Cadd2 Furry sings the blues
Bb/Eb Laughing, smoking, drinking he'll play for you
Gm9 It's mostly muttering now, and side show spiel
Gm9 F/C Cadd2 But there was one song he played I could really feel
