Find My Baby Blues

(Steve Robinson)
Born in the city raised in the countryside
Born in the city raised in the countryside
I’ve been all around this country
Trying to find that baby of mine

First time I saw her I was working on that Great South Bay
First time I saw her I was working on that Great South Bay
Couldn’t make no money
Let my baby slip away

Went to Oklahoma, thought I’d find my baby there
Went to Oklahoma, thought I’d find my baby there
There were lots of pretty women
Couldn’t find my baby anywhere

Saw her in Virginia, she was livin’ down on Hawkin’s farm
Saw her in Virginia, she was livin’ down on Hawkin’s farm
Woke up one morning
Found my baby gone

So I took to the highway searching Pennsylvania towns
I took to the highway searching Pennsylvania towns
Even got myself a job there
Till that bossman put me down

Instrumental bridge

Back to New York City I was working for some rich man’s son
Back to New York City I was working for some rich man’s son
But the bossman was a drunken fool
On the road again

If you see my baby tell her I’m a lonesome man
If you see my baby tell her I’m a lonesome man
I’m working down on Maggie’s farm
Doing the best I can

Born in the city raised in the countryside
Born in the city raised in the countryside
I’ve been all around this country
Trying to find that baby of mine
