Number five, number five
Please bring my baby back to me
Number five, number five
Please bring my baby back to me
Now you's the meanest old train
Number five, that I've ever seen

Now when my baby left me
My baby wouldn't even wave her hand
When my baby left me
My baby wouldn't even wave her hand
Well now I know the reason she left me
'Cause she was wild about some other man

Now but that would be alright now
I know my baby ain't goin' to stay away
Now but that would be alright, yeah
I know my baby ain't goin' to stay away
Well now, an she's the woman who stays on my mind
People, she's the only woman I crave

(harmonica & piano)

'Play it to me boy, you know how I feel'

(harmonica & piano)

'Thinking about how my baby feel'

Lord, an I just looked on the 'allendar
Now just to see when yo' birthday was gon' be
Lord, I just looked on the 'allendar
Just to see when yo' birthday's gon' be
Now said, I believe that you musta born in March
Because you've got changin' ways on me

Now fare you well, now
Baby, yes I'm goin' away
Fare you well, now
Baby, yes I'm goin' away
Well now, I know you didn't love me
Now an I'm gon' find me some other place to stay.

~
