Since I Lost My Baby  The Temptations

by The Temptations, 1965
tabbed by Rob Stahl (
Key of Eb Capo I and play in D
[D]D F#m [F#m]G D x2 (with strings)
The [D]sun is [F#m]shining, there's [G]plenty of [D]light (oh yeah)
A [D]new day is [F#m]dawning, [G]sunny and [D]bright (oh yeah)
But [D]after I've been crying all night
The [D]sun is [F#m]cold, and the [G]new day seems [D]old
[D]Since I lost my baby (Since I lost my baby)
Oh, [G]since I lost my baby (Oh, since I lost my baby)
The birds are singin? and the children are playin?
There's plenty of work and the bosses are payin?
Not a sad word should a young heart be sayin?
But fun is a bore and with money I'm poor
(repeat CHORUS)
[G]Next time I'll be kinder (Next time I'll be kinder)
Won't you [D]please help me find her (Won't you [D]please help me find her)
[G]Someone just remind her ([G]Someone just remind her)
Of this [D]love she left behind her (Of this [D]love she left behind her)
?Til I [G]find her I'll be tryin? ta (?Til I [G]find her I'll be tryin? ta)
Every[G]day I'm [D]more in[G]clined [D]ta [G]find h[D]er
In[G]clined [D]ta [G]find [D]her [G]In[G]clined [G]ta [A]find [A]my [D]baby
[G] Been looking everywhere ([D]Ba--by) Baby [G] I really, really care![G] [G] [G] [A] [A] [A]
Oh, determination is fading fast (oh yeah)
Inspiration is a thing of the past (oh yeah)
Can't see how my hope's gonna last
Good things are bad and what's happy is sad
[D]Since I lost my baby (Since I lost my baby)
Oh, [G]since I lost my baby ([G]sinc[G]e I ?[G]) I[A] f[A]ee[A]l so [D]bad (since I lost my baby)
I feel so [G]sad (sin[G]ce I ?[G]) Ev[G]ery[A]th[A]in[A]g is [D]wrong (since I lost my baby)
This heart is hard to carry [G]on (si[G]nce I [G]?) I'm[G] lo[A]st[A] a[A]s can[D] be (since I ?)
What's gonna happen to [G]me?
