Merle Travis recorded this as an instrumental, so I assume you wanted sheet music or tablature. Sorry, I can't help with that, but I can provide the lyrics:


I GOTTA HAVE MY BABY BACK
Written by Floyd Tillman
As recorded by Floyd Tillman, 1949.

Baby, baby,
I miss you so very much, it hurts me.
Baby, I just gotta, I gotta have my baby back.

Can't sleep, and I can't eat,
'Cause I've lost my sweet baby sweet.
I just gotta, I just gotta, I gotta have my baby back.

Alone in a tavern, people all around,
Laugin' and dancin', paintin' the town,
Jukebox is playin' songs about you,
Songs with memories makin' me blue.

Baby, come on home.
Without my baby I just can't get along.
I gotta, I just gotta, I gotta have my baby back.


[Lots of other people recorded this too: Ella Fitzgerald with the Mills Brothers, Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard, Hank Thompson, Rex Allen, Rusty Draper, Red Foley, Tennessee Ernie Ford.]
