Baseball Blues

Written by:

I've got the baseball blues
Because my baby ain't got no baseball shoes
I've got the baseball blues
Because my baby ain't got no baseball shoes
Well I asked him, honey, what do you want
He said, honey baby, there's only one thing I want
And that's some baseball shoes
And that's why I got the baseball blues

I've got the baseball blues
Because my baby ain't got no baseball shoes
I've got the baseball blues
Because my baby ain't got no baseball shoes
Well I have been to the store
One, two, three, four times
I said, hey mister have you got any more
Of them baseball shoes
Because my baby has got no baseball shoes

I've got the baseball blues
Because my baby ain't got no baseball shoes
I've got the baseball blues
Because my baby ain't got no baseball shoes
Well every time I have been to the shop
I said, hey mister, any baseball shoes have you got
Because my baby has got the baseball blues
Because my baby ain't got no baseball shoes

I've got the baseball blues
Because my baby ain't got no baseball shoes
I've got the baseball blues
Because my baby ain't got no baseball shoes
Well instead of the baseballs, will you have me
Because it seems like I am the only thing that's free
And give up the baseball blues
Because you ain't got no baseball shoes.

muffnote:
John Martyn plays guitar on this sort of vaudeville track with some modest backslap. He is accompanied by The Alex Welsh Band.
