lyrics

When I left my home I was San Francisco bound
When I left my home I was San Francisco bound
Had the blues on my mind, yearnin' for that sweet ole West Coast sound

I got a gig in Oakland playing with the baddest cats in town
I got a gig in Oakland playing with the baddest cats in town
Well they called me "Paris Slim" 'cause they knew I'd get around

One of these mornin's, I'm gonna leave the Frisco Bay
One of these mornin's, I'm gonna leave the Frisco Bay
I'm gonna take these blues back home and play 'em just that way!
