Late at night, when it's dark and cold,
I reach out for someone to hold.
When I'm blue, when I'm lonely,
She come through; she's the only one that can.
My baby grand is all I need.
In my time, I've wandered everywhere
Around this world; she would always be there,
Any day, any hour;
All it takes is the power in my hands.
This baby grand's been good to me.
I've had friends, but they slipped away.
I've had fame, but it doesn't stay.
I've made fortunes, spent them fast enough.
As for women, they don't last with just one man;
But Baby Grand will stand by me.
They say no one's gonna play this on the radio;
They said melancholy blues were dead and gone.
But only songs like these, played in minor keys,
Keep those memories holding on.
I've come far from the life I've strayed in,
I've got scars from those dives I've played in.
Now I'm home, and I'm weary in my bones;
Every dreary one-night stand my baby grand came home with me.
Ever since this gig began,
My baby grand's been good to me.
