Jerry Garcia played a verse of this with the Grateful Dead on 18 April 1986, before switching to That's All Right Mama. There is no record of him playing it with any of his solo bands. These are the full lyrics from the well-known Elvis Presley version:

Lyrics

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 left me, never said a word

Lord 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 Daddy will be gone
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
You know she left me, yes she left me
My baby even left me, never said a word
Yes my baby left me, never said a word

  • My Baby Left Me

    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 left me, never said a word

    Lord 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 Daddy will be gone
    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
    You know she left me, yes she left me
    My baby even left me, never said a word
    Yes my baby left me, never said a word
