    Lyrics

    You know my baby told me not so very long ago
    He said, "I don't love you, baby
    And you got to, you got to let me go"
    And that was too much, too much for me
    That's why I walked the back streets and cry

    You know it hurts me so bad
    To hear my baby say
    Hear my baby say goodbye

    He said another reason that makes me wanna leave
    You ain't got enough of nothin' to keep me, keep me [Incomprehensible]
    That was too much, oh, too much for me
    That's why I walked the back streets, the back street and cry
    Oh yeah

    Oh, it hurts me, it hurts me so bad
    Oh, to hear my baby
    Hear my baby say goodbye

    He said, "You're a good woman, Etta
    To treat me like you do"
    He said, "You ain't done nothin' to me
    I just can't stay here with you"

    I stood and watch my baby as far as I could see
    You know the men started runnin'
    After waiving, waiving goodbye to me
    That was too much, too much for me
    That's why I walked the back streets and cry
    Oh yeah

    You know it hurts me, it hurts me so bad
    Oh, to hear my baby
    Hear my baby say goodbye
    Hear and say goodbye

    You know it hurts me so bad
    To hear my baby say goodbye
    That's why I walked the back streets
    The back streets and cry

    Oh, I said it hurts me, it hurts me so bad
    Hear my baby say, so long
    Oh, it hurts me, hurts me, hurts me so bad
    Hear my baby say, hear my baby say goodbye

    Oh baby, oh, oh, it hurts me so bad
    Hear my baby say goodbye
    That why I walked the back streets
    That why I walked the back streets and cry
    Oh, that why I walked the back streets and cry
    Cry, cry
