Conway Twitty – Baby’s Gone lyrics

My hand is trembling as the key unlocks the door
My legs are shaky as I walk across the floor
My voice weakens as I call out I’m home
Do my eyes deceive me or is my baby gone?

Baby’s gone she couldn’t stand to tell me face to face
And things just ain’t the way they used to be
Around this place
Her perfume lingers where she once lay her head
And I can almost taste the teardrops that she shed
As she searched her mind and tried to find
Just where our love went wrong
But it’s ended and it’s over, and baby’s gone.

Baby’s gone she couldn’t stand to tell me face to face
And things just ain’t the way they used to be
Around this place
Her perfume lingers where she once lay her head
And I can almost taste the teardrops that she shed
As she searched her mind and tried to find
Just where it all went wrong
But it’s ended and it’s over, and baby’s gone…
