San Francisco Bay Blues (Jesse Fuller) I got the blues for my baby Down beside the San Francisco Bay Big ocean liner, took her so far away Well I didn't mean to treat her so bad She was the best girl I ever had She said goodbye, gonna make me cry Gonna make me lay right down and die Well I ain't got a nickel and I ain't got a lousy dime If she don't come back I think I'm gonna lose my mind If she ever comes back to stay Its gonna be another brand new day Walking with my baby down beside the San Francisco Bay Sitting down looking from my back door Wonder which way to go Woman I'm so crazy about She don't love me no more Think I'm gonna take a freight train Cause I'm feeling blue Ride all the way to the end of the line Thinking, sweet baby, of you Back in another city Think I'm gonna go insane Sounds like I heard my baby The way she used to call my name If she ever comes back to stay Its gonna be another brand new day Walking with my baby down beside the San Francisco Bay Recorded by the Weavers, Rooftop Singers RG
