Staton, Candi - He Called Me Baby Lyrics




He called me baby, baby
All night long
Used to hold and kiss me
Till the dawn

Then one day I awoke
And he was gone
There's no more baby, baby
All night long

He called me baby, baby
All night long
Lord, I feel so empty
Since he's been gone

Now I lie here and I die here
Until the dawn
I miss my baby, baby, baby
All night long

He called me baby, baby, baby
All night long, yes, he did
Kiss my tears away
When things went wrong

What I'd give, what I'd give
If he'd come on back home
And call me baby, baby, baby
All night long, oh, yeah
Mmm hmm, yeah

He called me baby, baby
All night long
Held me up so high
And made me strong

Now each night in dreams

Just like a song
I can still hear baby, baby, baby
All night long

I can still hear
Baby, baby, baby, baby
All night long

I can still hear him
Calling me baby, baby, baby, baby
All night long

Oh, what you do
Is just hold me, baby
Squeeze me, baby
All night long

I just wanna hear you say baby

  7. Tawny Arias

    Wow. I miss a strong female friend I have not been able to see. I hope she is not being abused or killing herself again and being disrespected like usual. I hope that she is happy and being loved the right way and not in harm's way like the many times before when men and jealous female's blame her and use her for everything. I hope she was happy or is wherever she is now. People I loved this much are either Dead or killed themselves. XO

    I LOVE this version. It was originally done in 1961 by Patsy Cline. They're both awesome singers 😊

  29. Linda Carroll

    The first persons to sing this song was Patsy Cline in 1964

    Darn Right

    And Candi Staton made it famous

  30. hastalabagel

  39. Janet Boggs

    Clif small I don,t know you,and with your zero iq I don,t care to know you,you sound like an absolute damn idiot

  40. Janet Boggs

    The game 546444 I disagree,Candi staton is a great singer and performer,been a fan of hers for years,but nobody tops Aretha,Aretha is in a class to herself,everybody else comes under her,she,s the queen of soul music.

  41. Janet Boggs

    Mick Denis,you idiot,Whitney Houston ranks with all time greats,where have you been down Ina damn cave,you have no idea what you are talking about,and know nothing about music,you sound like a damn fool.

  42. kirkdurance

    Written by country songwriter Harlan Howard

  43. Marry Townsel

    I remember my mom playing this song when i was young. Now she's gone and im 50 yrs old and i still listen to it. Classic for real.

    Andy Floyd

    I'm 59 and still listening. I rediscovered this when my first wife died 11 years ago.

    Vernita Jones

    That's real music and life stories

    anb3rlyn

    I miss my baby too- Great song.

  44. Janet Boggs

    Thegame546444 I agree that candi is good,but I want to bring you back to reality,NOBODY TOPS ARETHA,and that's not brag,thatS A FACT.

  45. Aisling O'Brien

    this is the sexiest song ever

  46. Simona Simpson

    a bit of Janis's 'Cry Baby' in it..
    makes it endurable

  47. charming charmer

    I was mesmerised by Led Zep at the time, plus, here in NZ we didn't get to hear this. I'm glad I eventually got to appreciate this awesomeness, even if I had to go the long route via Harlan, who is also great.

  53. Frank Schoenrock

    I love the part in the video where she blinks....

  54. Jeff Williams

    Who would ever have thought this started out as a country song?

    Darn Right

    So did Midnight Train To Georgia

  65. Wyndhl

    Oh, how Candi has taken a song with standard melody and simple lyrics and transforms it into excellence second-to-none!

    Candi, let me be your baby - all night long.

    10::10

    Wyndhl

    Now, the Blues has gotten to me oh, Candi! Do call ME your Baby!

    Don't allow "Suspicious Mind" ever to erase our imaginary adoration and love for each other, oh, Candi!

    "Stand By Your Man" always; it's I who have been calling you "Baby, all night long."

    It's "Just My Imagination Running Away With Me."

  66. Darn Right

    Still enjoying this in 2017- One of the great R&B/Pop&Soul soprano voices of all time. Too bad they don't make em like that anymore.

  67. Nesi Ani

    FANTASTIC !

  68. Nesi Ani

  88. hattie martin mays

    After about 45 years this song still sounds soooooooo good. Candi, Clarence Carter and I are Alabama connected. They most definitely can't sing no wrong. Bottom Line Love Them to the Moon.

    Darn Right

    So why did Carter treat her so wrong?

  89. ali N

    Bones brought me here !!!! lol

    Steven B.

    Debbie Williams

    Same here.

  90. flamencoprof

    Just recently discovered this artist. I was surprised to hear this number that I knew as a country song written in 1961 by Harlan Howard done in this style, but it works really well. I guess Ray Charles was onto something!
