Lyrics:
 

Yes, my baby left me, never said a word
Was it something I done, something that she heard
My baby left me, my baby left me

My baby even left me, never said a word

Lord, I stand at my own, wring my hands and cry
I hate to lose that woman, hate to say goodbye
You know, she left me, yes, she left me
My baby even left me, never said a word

Baby, one of these mornings, Lord, it won't be long
You'll look for me and, baby, and daddy he will not know

You know, you left me, you know you left me
My baby even left me, never said a word

Now, I stand at my own, wring my hands and moan
All I know is that the one I love is gone
My baby left me, you know, she left me
My baby even left me, n
ever said a word

Yes, my baby even left me, never said a word
