1966 August 26: New York RCA
Oh stairs you look so high tonight
Climbing up with all my might
Where I got no heart to beat
Cos he ain't coming home no more

Old room I'm all alone with you
Tell me what's a woman to do
When her man is gone
And he ain't coming home no more

I'm all shook up inside me
Trying to hold back my tears
You know I just can't get used
I just can't get used to this loneliness
How I'm gonna face the emptiness

Oh chair old chair you sit inside of there
Don't you even care
That my baby is gone yeah yeah
And he ain't coming home no more
Yes for my baby is gone
And he ain't coming home no more
