Got the blues from my baby Left me by the san francisco bay. This big ocean liner took her so far away. Didn't mean to treat her so bad She was the best girl I ever have had. She said good-bye, and she made me cry I'm gonna lay right down and die. Well, I ain't got a nickel and I ain't got a lousy dime. If she don't come back I think I'm gonna lose my mind. If she ever comes back to stay, Well, that'll be another brand new day, Walking with my baby down by the san francisco bay. Sittin' in my back door Wondering which way to go That woman I'm so crazy about She don't love me no more. Lord, I think I'll grab a freight train Because I'm feeling blue, Ride all the way to the end of the line Thinking only about you. Well, meanwhile in another city Just about to go insane Thought I heard my baby The way she used called my name. If she ever comin' back to stay Well, that'll be another brand new day Walking with my baby down by the san francisco bay (I really mean it!) Oh, walking with my baby down by the san francisco bay, whew!!
