Richie Havens – San Francisco Bay Blues lyrics

I got the blues from my baby
Down by the San Francisco bay,
The ocean liner's gone so far away
Didn't mean to treat her so bad,
She was the best girl I ever have had,
She said goodbye,
I can take a cry,
I want to lay right down and die

I ain't got a nickel
And I ain't got a lousy dime
If she don't come back,
I think I'm going to lose my mind
If she ever gets back to stay,
It's going to be another brand new day,
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco bay

Sitting down looking from my back door,
Wondering which way to go,
The woman I'm so crazy about,
She don't love me no more
Think I'll catch me a freight train,
'Cause I'm feeling blue,
And ride all the way to the end of the line,
Thinking only of you

Meanwhile, in another city,
Just about to go insane,
Thought I heard my baby, Lord,
The way she used to call my name
If I 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 down by the San Francisco bay,
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco bay
