VERSE 1
Dmaj7                        Em7                    Dmaj7
I got the blues from my baby down by the San Francisco Bay
Em7                             Dmaj7
An ocean liner took her so far away
        Em7                                      Dmaj7                     B7
Well, I didn't mean to treat her so bad, she was the best girl I ever have had
      Em7                                D
Well, she said goodbye, and made me cry, I want to lay right down and die
 
 
VERSE 2
Dmaj7                    Em7               Dmaj7

    Em7                                               F#7
And if she don't come back, I think I'm going to lose my mind
       Gmaj7                         D          F#        B7
If she ever gets back to stay, gonna be another brand new day
       Em7                     A7                  D
When I go walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay

O Lord, I'm just about to go insane
Em7                                                       F#7
I thought I heard my baby, Lord, the way she used to call my name
   Gmaj7                              D          C#7       B7
If she ever comes back to stay, gonna be another brand new day

Talking to my baby
    Am7           Gmaj7
Playing into my baby
Bm7              E7
Clinging to my baby
          Em7                       A7                Dmaj7
When I go walking with my baby down by the San Francisco Bay
