I got the [C] blues when my baby left me [F] by the San Francisco [C] Bay [C7]
The [F] ocean liner, gone so far a- [C] way [C7]
I [F] didn't mean to treat her so bad, she was the [C] best gal I ever, ever [A7] had
She [D7] said “Goodbye”, she'd like to make me cry [G7] I wanna lay down and die

I [C] ain't got a nickel and I [F] ain't got a lousy [C] dime [C7]
If she [F] don't come back, I think I'm gonna lose my [E7] mind [E7]
[F] Ever get back to stayin', gonna [C] be another brand new [A7] day
[D7] Walkin' with my baby down [G7] by the San Francisco [C] Bay [C]

| [C] Sittin' down [F] lookin' through my | [C] back door |
| [C] Wonderin' which [F] way to | [C] go |
[F] Woman I'm so crazy about, she don't love me no [C] more
[F] Think I'll catch me a [Fm] freight train [C] because I'm feelin' [A7] blue
[D7] Ride all the way to the end of the line [G7] thinkin' only of you

| [C] Meanwhile [F] in another | [C] city |
| [C] Just about to [F] go in- | [C] sane |
[F] Well I heard my baby, Lord, the [E7] way she used to call my name
If I [F] ever get back to stayin', there's gonna [C] be another brand new [A7] day
[D7] Walkin' with my baby down [G7] by the San Francisco [C] Bay, hey [A7] hey
[D7] Walkin' with my baby down [G7] by the San Francisco [C] Bay [A7]
Yeah I'm [D7] walkin' with my baby down [G7] by the San Francisco [C] Bay  [G7↓] [C↓]
