My Baby's Gone    (1958)

Hold back the rushing minutes
Make the wind lie still
Don't let the moonlight shine across the lonely hill
Dry all the raindrops, hold back the sun
My world has ended, my baby's gone

The milkman whistles softly as he comes up to my door
And the mailman bring the letters by just like he did before
They seem so busy all day long as if there's nothing wrong
Don't they know the world has ended, my baby's gone

Hold back the rushing minutes
Make the wind lie still
Don't let the moonlight shine across the lonely hill
Dry all the raindrops, hold back the sun
My world has ended, my baby's gone

I wake up sometimes in the night
And realize you're gone
And then I toss upon my bed
And wait for day to come
I tried to tell my lonely heart
It must go on alone
But it cries the world has ended, my baby's gone

Hold back the rushing minutes
Make the wind lie still
Don't let the moonlight shine across the lonely hill
Dry all the raindrops, hold back the sun
My world has ended, my baby's gone
My world has ended, my baby's gone
