Since I Lost My Baby

Lyrics: Smokey Robinson, Warren "Pete" Moore
Music: Smokey Robinson, Warren "Pete" Moore

Played as an instrumental by Jerry Garcia with Legion of Mary.

The sun is shining, there's plenty of light
A new day is dawning, sunny and bright
But after I've been crying all night
The sun is cold, and the new day seems old
Since I lost my baby
Oh, since I lost my baby

The birds are singing and the children are playing
There's plenty of work and the bosses are paying
Not a sad word should a young heart be saying
But fun is a bore and with money I'm poor

Since I lost my baby
Oh, since I lost my baby
Next time I'll be kinder
Won't you please help me find her
Someone just remind her
Of this love she left behind her
Till I find her I'll be trying to
Everyday I'm more inclined to
Find her
Inclined to find her
Inclined to find my baby
Been looking everywhere
Baby, I really, really care

Oh, determination is fading fast
Inspiration is a thing of the past
Can't see how my hope's gonna last
Good things are bad and what's happy is sad

Since I lost my baby
Oh, since I lost my baby
I feel so bad (since I lost my baby)
I feel so sad (since I lost my baby)
Everything is wrong
This heart is hard to carry on (since I lost my baby)
I'm lost as can be (since I lost my baby)
What's gonna happen to me?
