Have You Seen My Baby? – Randy Newman

04/09/2010

I’m not an expert, but I think this is one of the most covered Newman’s songs. Check out Ringo’s version, sometimes mistakenly titled “Hold On”.

Have you seen my baby
          G
On the avenue?

You know she's driving me crazy
         C
With the  funny things she do

I seen her with the milkman
                G
Ridin' down the street

When you're through with my baby, milkman
                 C
Send her home to me

     F        G#*      C       (* - only in Ringo's cover.)
Hold on, hold on, hold on
     F        G#*      C
Hold on, hold on, hold on
              E       Am
You know it's been so long
      F             G#
Since she have been gone
     C        G        C
Hold on, hold on, hold on

I seen her with the gipsies
Dancin' in the wood
She's always been unfaithful to me
She ain't never been no good
I say, "Please don't talk to strangers, baby"
But she always do
She say, "I'll talk to strangers if I want to
'Cause I'm a stranger, too"

Hold on, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on
You know it's been so long
Since she have been gone
Hold on, hold on, hold on
