Don't Say Goodbye - Leroy Carr
Piano in Eb, Scrapper Blackwell, guitar in D position, standard tuning, at Eb

If you didn't want me baby, why didn't you tell me so?
If you didn't want me baby, why didn't you tell me so?
Why did you make me love you, then pack your trunk and go?

Look at me baby, look at what you've done to me
Look at me baby, look at what you've done to me
You made me love you, now I'm in misery

Hear me pleading baby, see me hang my head and cry
Hear me pleading baby, see me hang my head and cry
Can't bear to lose you, to hear you say goodbye

Don't say goodbye, don't say we're through
For if you leave me, what shall I do?
I'll tell you truly, I love you so
Can't bear to lose you, to see you go

We were so happy in the days of old
But now you tell me that your love is cold
Just hear me pleading, just hear me sigh
Don't say that you're leaving, don't say goodbye

Note: This is one of Leroy Carr's four "hybrid" blues songs. The first three verses are sung as a standard 12 bar blues. The final two verses are sung in the style of an up-tempo pop song.
