When my baby moved out and the blues moved in
There wasn't nothin' I could do
But mosey around with my head in my hands
Yelling, “What am I comin' to?”

And I just keep moanin', moanin' the blues

Well, I wrote a nice long letter sayin', "Mama, please come home"
Your daddy is lonesome and all I do is moan

I've been lovin' that gal for so doggone long
Can't afford to lose her now
I thought I was right but I must have been wrong
Because my head is startin' to bow

And I just keep moanin', moanin' the blues

Hey, baby, baby, baby, honey baby, please come home
Your daddy is lonesome and all I do is moan

I've been lovin' that gal for so doggone long
Can't afford to lose her now
I thought I was right but I must have been wrong
Because my head is startin' to bow

And I just keep moanin', moanin' the blues
