"Meet me in St. Louis, Louis,
Meet me at the fair,
Don't tell me the lights are shining
Any place but there..."
Lyrics sung by Judy Garland
Written by Martin, Hugh/Blane, Ralph
I hate to see that evenin’ sun go down/I hate to see that evenin’ sun go down/ Cause my baby has left this town.
If I'm feelin’ tomorrow, just like I feel today/If I'm feelin’ tomorrow like I feel today/I’ll pack my trunk and make my get-away.…
I’ve got the St. Louis blues, just as blue as I can be…
The Gateway Arch, 200 Washington Avenue: “The nation’s tallest monument at 630 feet, the Gateway Arch has beckoned visitors for more than 40 years with its iconic, awe-inspiring shape. The vision of renowned architect Eero Saarinen, the Gateway Arch commemorates Thomas Jefferson and St. Louis’ role in the westward expansion of the United States.” http://www.gatewayarch.com/experience/the-gateway-arch/
