My Baby Left Me


My Baby Left Me
sung by Elvis Presley
(words & music by Arthur Crudup)
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 goodbye. 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.

Tonight I am very sad. We took Rascal to Dr. D. late this afternoon. We have been saying our goodbyes for a while, but when that last one happens you're never prepared for the finality.
I didn't think I would want to keep his ashes--I thought we would feel too sad. When the time came though, I just couldn't say that last goodbye yet. So I said ok. I'll make a sweet reliquary for them. Creative grieving. Christine has his red collar and heart-shaped name tag. She's using it as her key chain.
Man, I miss his head on my keyboard. I'm going to listen to some sad music, The King can sing those blues. Yeah, my baby left me, you know he left me, my baby even left me, never said a word.
But he left a lot of love and that I will keep in my heart.
