Lyrics

Oh, I was lying in the bed with fever And I was burning up inside My baby walked in my bedroom And I could hardly open my eyes She said she was Going to the pawn shop Just across the track She started packing Some clothes in a hurry And then she said She would be right back But I ain't seen hide nor hair Of my baby since that day Well, I ain't seen hide nor hair Of my baby since she went away I remember so well When she slammed the door But the girl didn't Make it back no more I ain't seen hide nor hair Of my baby since that day Well, I waited for her 24 hours And I was just about to starve to death It didn't look like she was coming back So I had to look out for myself Well, I called the police department To find out what they knew They said, no, by heck But we will get her yet Because they were looking for her too Well, I ain't seen hide nor hair Of my baby since that day, yeah Well, I ain't seen hide nor hair Of my baby since she went away

Well, I don't know what Happened across the track But I know my baby Didn't make it back I ain't seen hide nor hair Of my baby since that day Well, I called my Dr. Foster And when the girl answered the phone I got a funny feeling The way she said Dr. Foster had gone She said he left with a lady patient About twenty-four hours ago I added two and two And here's what I got I got I'll never see that girl no more Well, I ain't seen hide nor hair Of my baby since that day, yeah Well, I ain't seen hide nor hair Of my baby since she went away If Dr. Foster has got her Then I know I'm through Because he's got medicine And money too I ain't seen hide nor hair Of my baby since that day Whoa, no
