Baby Won't You Please Come Home

Lyrics: Clarence Williams, Charles Warfield
Music: Clarence Williams, Charles Warfield

Played by Jerry with James Booker in the JGB in January 1976. Often listed in setlists as just "Please Come Home" (and not to be confused with the song Love Please Come Home played by Old And In The Way.)

Baby, won't you please come home
'Cause you're daddy's all alone
I have tried in vain
Nevermore to call your name

When you left, yeah when you left you broke my little heart
Because you said we'd never part
Every hour and every minute of the day
You gonna hear me say
Sweet mama, won't you please come on home
Come on home to your daddy, will you, darling, please

Baby, won't you please come home
'Cause you're daddy's all alone
Well, woman, you know, you know, I have tried in vain
Tried, no more, never no more to call your sweet name

But when you left, you know, you broke my little old heart
Because you said we'd never part
Every minute of the day
You know you're gonna hear me say
Sweet mama, won't you please come home
Sweet mama
Come on home, please cme home
Yeah, won't you come home
Baby, won't you please come home
Yeah, won't you come home
