Baby's Gone Blues
Written by Joe Keenan

My baby's gone, she done gone away
I don't know if she's gonna stay
My clothes all tattered and my mind is spent
A week behind the paper now
A month behind the rent

Why she left, the only thing I know
Sometimes a woman, she just got to go
I ain't got no letter she sent
A week behind the paper now
A month behind the rent

Don't you know it's a crying shame
When your baby leaves
You got so much pain
My clothes all tattered and my mind is spent
A week behind the paper now
A month behind the rent

People say why do you sing the blues
Haven't you heard, haven't you heard the news
Your baby's back, she's been looking for her gent
Better throw away those papers boy, better pay your rent
Or you'll wind up like me living in a tent

My baby's gone, she done gone away
I don't know if she's gonna stay
My clothes all tattered and my mind is spent
A week behind the paper now
A month behind the rent
