The famous verse with the lyric "Won't you come along with me..." was later added by Glenn Miller and Jack Teagarden.

The Basin Street of the title refers to the notorious red-light district of the early 20th-century New Orleans French Quarter.

Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys also recorded a version during the group's heyday with Tommy Duncan. Louis Prima also recorded the song on his 1957 album The Wildest!.
