I got the blues from my baby down by San Francisco Bay,
She took an ocean liner she's gone so far away,
Well I didn't mean to treat her so bad,
She was the best looking girl I ever had,
She said goodbye, made me cry, I'm gonna lay down and die

Well I ain't got a nickel, 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, there's gonna be a brand new day,
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay

I'm sitting down and 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 take me a freight train because I'm feeling blue,
Ride on the track to the end of the line,
A-thinking only of you,

Well meanwhile I'm sitting in the city, just about to go insane,
The woman I'm so crazy 'bout, wondering if she call my name,
If she ever comes back to stay, there gonna be a brand new day,
A walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay
