San Francisco Bay Blues --- Jesse Fuller

 

INTRO:  C-F-C-C7-F-C-C7..___


I got the [G]blues from my baby livin' [C]by the San Francisco [G]Bay [G7]
[C]Ocean liner took her so far a-[G]way [G7]
I [C]didn't mean to treat her so bad; she was the [G]best girl I ever have [E7]had
She [A7]said goodbye; made me cry
 [D7]I wanna lay right down and die

I [G]ain't got a nickle and I [C]ain't got a lousy [G]dime
If she [C]don't come back, I think Iím gonna lose my [B7]mind
If she [C]ever come back to stay, it's gonna [G]be another brand new [E7]day
[A7]Walkin' with my baby down [D7]by the San Francisco [G]Bay

Solo.......
Play the previous chords again and go ___

[G]Sittin' down [C]by my [G]back door wondrin' which [C]way to [G]go
[C]Woman I'm so crazy 'bout she don't love me no [G]more
[C]Think I'll catch me a freight train [G]ícause I'm feelin' [E7]blue
[A7]Ride all the way to the end of the line  [D7]thinkin' only of you


[G]Meanwhile [C]in another [G]city, just about to [C]go in-[G]sane
[C]Sounds like I heard my baby Ė the [B7]way she used to call my name
If she [C]ever comes back to stay, it's gonna [G]be another brand new [E7]day
[A7]Walkin with my baby down [D7]by the San Francisco [G]Bay [E7]
[A7]Walkin with my baby down [D7]by the San Francisco [G]Bay [E7]
Yeah, [A7]walkin with my baby down [D7]by the San Francisco [G]Bay
