I got the blues from my baby
Left me by the San Francisco Bay,
The ocean liner's gone so far away.
Well, I didn't mean to treat her so bad,
She was the best girl I ever have had,
She said goodbye, She makes me cry,
I gone to lay down and die.

I ain't got a nickel and
I ain't got a lousy dime.
If she don't come back,
I'm going to lose my mind.
If she ever comes back to stay,
It's going to be another brand new day,
Walking with my baby
By the San Francisco Bay.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, I'm sittin' down
Looking through my back door,
Just a-wondering which way to go,
Woman I'm so crazy for,
Says she don't love me no more.
Think I'll catch me a freight train,
Think about feeling blue,
I'm gone to ride all the way
To the end of the line,
Thinking only of you.

Well, Meanwhile, in another city,
Just about to go insane,
Seems like I heard my baby,
The way she used to call my name.
If she ever get her back to stay,
it's going to be another brand new day,
Walking with my baby
Down by the San Francisco Bay,
Walking with my baby
By the San Francisco Bay...
