San Francisco Bay Blues [G]


1.

I got the blues from my baby left me by the San Francisco Bay,
The ocean liner's gone so far away,
Didn't mean to treat her so bad, the best girl I ever have had,
Said goodbye, Like to make me cry, wanna lay down and die.

I ain't got a nickel and I ain't got a lousy dime,
If She don't come back, guess I'm gonna lose my mind,
If she ever comes back to stay, gonna be another brand new day,
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay

Sitting down looking thru’ my back door, wondering which way to go,
Woman I'm so crazy about, she don't love me no more,
Think I'll catch me a freight train, because I'm feeling blue,
And ride all the way to the end of the line, thinking only of you.

Meanwhile, in another city, i’m just about to go insane,
Thought like I heard my baby, the way she used to call my name,
If she ever comes back to stay, gonna be another brand new day,
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay.

Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay, hey.
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay.
