My Baby Left Me

Elvis Presley Lyrics Words & Music by Arthur Crudup Elvis Presley 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.

Now I stand at my window,
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'll be gone.

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

Now, I stand at my window,
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,
never said a word.

Recorded: 1956/01/30, first released on single

After making his first appearance on National TV on the Dorsey Brothers Stage Show, Elvis stayed in town.

Around 11 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 30, he and the band headed for the RCA Studio, 155 E. 24th St. They recorded for seven hours that day, then three hours on Jan. 31 and another several hours on Feb. 3.

These New York Sessions yielded 'Blue Suede Shoes' and seven other tunes:

'My Baby Left Me', One-Sided Love Affair', So Glad You're Mine', I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Cry Over You', Tutti Fruitti', Lawdy Miss Clawdy' and 'Shake, Rattle and Roll'.

'Blue Suede Shoes' was the only hit single in the bunch, but the sessions were crucial in Elvis history because they marked the point at which he started moving away from his raw, pure Sun sound to the more commercial and mainstream sound RCA envisioned for him.
