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.
