lyrics

Have you ever partied down on old Beale Street
Everybody's walkin to a grooved out beat
The man on the corner make ya pat your feet
To that funky funky rhythm of ol Beale Street
Guitars screamin outta B.B. Kings
Bass is boomin out of Rum Boogie
If you get lost lets try to meet a the statue of W.C. Handy

Beale Street the shadows they know your name
Back alley Beale Street you'll never be the same again
Eww wee Back Alley Beale Street

A full moon on a Friday night
leavin Rafford's bout a quarter to 5
When somethin in my head says man its time to get high
What's going down my brother can I get a 20 sack from you
He said I'll be right back partna
But when I saw him he tried to jack me up with his friend

Back alley Beale Street the shadows they know your name
Back alley Beale Street you never be the same again
Eww wee Back Alley Beale Street

The shadows shadows shadows know your name
And aint everybody playin the same game
Some people cheat, some people lie, some people try to get by on the sly
Cuz back alley Beale Street is fill with skid row junkies aint afraid to die

I know, I know, I know, I know you wanna go
But I dont think, dont think, dont think, dont think its a smart move
I know, I know, I know, I know you wanna go
But I dont think, dont think its a smart move Beale Street!
