San Francisco Bay Blues Lyrics

Artist: Janis Joplin
Album: From the Soundtrack of the Motion Picture Janis

Got the blues from my baby
Left me by the San Francisco Bay.
This big ocean liner took her so far away.
Didn't mean to treat her so bad
She was the best girl I ever have had.
She said good-bye, and she made me cry
I'm gonna 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,
Well, that'll be another brand new day,
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay.

Sittin' in my back door
Wondering which way to go
That woman I'm so crazy about
She don't love me no more.
Lord, I think I'll grab a freight train
Because I'm feeling blue,
Ride all the way to the end of the line
Thinking only about you.

Well, meanwhile in another city
Just about to go insane
Thought I heard my baby
The way she used called my name.
If she ever comin' back to stay
Well, that'll be another brand new day
Walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay
(I really mean it!)
Oh, walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay, whew!!
