(Charles Warfield - Clarence Williams)

I got the blues and I'm lonely, and I'd give the world if
If I could only make you understand that I need you

Oh Baby, won't you please come home
'Cause you mama's all alone
I have tried in vain
Never no more to call your name
When you left you broke my heart
Because I never thought we'd part
Every hour in the day
You can hear me say
Baby, won't you please come home, come home

I'm gonna telegraph you, baby, and I'm gonna ask you
Won't you please come home
'Cause you know when you're gone I feel
So lonely and I need you

Baby, baby, come on home
Oh your little mama
Your little mama's all alone
Mm, I have tried in vain
I have tried and tried and tried not call your name

Yes, you know when you left
When you left you broke my little heart
Oh because, because I never thought
I never thought we'd part
Every hour of the day
Oh you're gonna hear me say
Oh baby, yeah, baby
You better listen to me, baby
Now baby, oh my baby, baby, baby
Won't you please come home...
