I got the blues when my baby left me down by the Frisco Bay;
An ocean liner came and took her away.
I didn't mean to treat her bad, she was the best gal I ever had;
She said goodbye, made me cry,
Made me wanna lay down my head and die.

(Refrain:)
Well I ain't got a nickel, and I ain't got a lousy dime?,
She don't come back, I think I'm gonna lose my mind.
She ever comes back to stay, it's gonna be another brand new day,
Walkin' with my baby by the San Francisco Bay.

(Bridge:)
Well, I'm sittin' here on the back porch, don't know which way to go;
The gal that I'm so crazy about, she don't love me anymore.
Think I'm gonna take a freight train, 'cause I'm feelin' blue,
Gonna ride it to the end of the line, thinkin' only of you.

(Refrain:)
Well I ain't got a nickel, and I ain't got a lousy dime?,
She don't come back, I think I'm gonna lose my mind.
She ever comes back to stay, it's gonna be another brand new day,
Walkin' with my baby by the San Francisco Bay,
Walkin' with my baby by the San Francisco Bay,
Walkin' with my baby by the San Francisco Bay.
