  • We used to have luck in the valley
  • But the little girl had to move way out of town
  • We used to have luck in the valley
  • But the girl had to move way out of town
  • Some moved in the alley
  • Ooo-well-well, because Third Street is going down
  • I had a girl on St. Louis Avenue
  • But Third Street she hung around
  • I had a girl on St. Louis Avenue
  • But Third Street she hung around
  • But the law got so hot
  • Ooo-well-well, until Third Street is going down
  • I waked up one mornin'
  • My face all full of frowns
  • Waked up one mornin'
  • My face all full of frowns
  • I heard nothin' about my baby
  • Ooo-well-well, Third Street is goin' down
  • (piano
  • 'Play it, let her hear it now'
  • 'Tore down highway sounds'
  • (piano continues)
  • The city hired Mr. Keeler
  • To put a highway through that part of town
  • I said, the city hired Mr. Keeler
  • To put a highway through that part of town
  • The law told the girls to move
  • Ooo-well-well, why because we're tearing Third Street down.
