Story

Hey Baby (Camden Song): 

 

The world’s happiest break-up song.  An upbeat pop style .remembrance of a fun summer  romance with sailing, skipping stones and walking through a green arbor in Camden, Maine.  “She was my baby with her hair hung down, green eyes a laughing with the sea all around. Hey pretty baby won’t you come back here, the day seems brighter when you’re sittin’ here.’  Hey baby, did you have to leave me?”An under current of growling guitar with two solos expresses the pains and regrets of the break-up.    

Lyrics

Track 5:  Hey Baby (Camden Song)

 

Sailin’ out of Camden on the New Orleans

Passing little vessels gliding through the breeze

She was my baby with her hair hung down

Green eyes a laughing with the sea all around

 

Hey pretty baby won’t you come back here

The day seems brighter when you’re sitting near

 

Hey baby did you have to leave me?

Hey baby did you have to leave me?

 

Skipping stones cross the pretty ol’ harbor

Walking holding hands through the little green arbor

She said I like you but I’m a little daunted

So I leaned down and gave her what she wanted

 

I like to see you laughing you are very dear

But when I kissed you last time it ended with a tear

 

Hey baby did you have to leave me?

Hey baby did you have to leave me?

 

I like to see you laughing you are very dear

But when I kissed you last time it ended with a tear

 

Hey baby did you have to leave me?

Hey baby did you have to leave me?

 

Now I sit alone on the benches and the pier

Thinking of the good times when I had more cheer

The wind isn’t warm the sea’s not laughing now

I’ll just have to think of her flying on that bow

 

Hey baby did you have to leave me?

 Hey baby did you have to leave me?

Hey baby did you have to leave me?

Hey baby did you have to leave me?
