Baby Please Don't Go

soundclip


by McKinley Morganfield a.k.a. Muddy Waters
recording of May 4, 1953

from Chess Box (Chess 9340), copyright notice

Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go, down to New Orleans
You know I love you so

Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog
I get you way'd out here, and let you walk alone

Turn your lamp down low
Turn your lamp down low
Turn your lamp down low
I beg you all night long, baby, please don't go

You brought me way down here
You brought me way down here
You brought me way down here
'bout to Rolling Forks, you treat me like a dog

Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go, back the New Orleans
I beg you all night long

Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog
I get you way'd out here, and let you walk alone

You know your man down gone
You know your man down gone
You know your man down gone
To the country farm1, with all the shackles on

__________
Note 1: country farm, Charlie Hardin suggests that this should be county farm. Charlie further says: "A county farm was (and maybe still is in some county's) a place were people could go to work off their fines for misdemeanor charges. Thanks Charlie for this contribution.
