Janis Joplin – Maybe lyrics

Alright, alright! This is an old rock & roll tune, it was done by the chantells in the 50s, a song called maybe

Oh if I could pray and I try, dear,
You might come back home, home to me.

Honey, maybe
Whoa, if I could ever hold your hand
Ooh you just might understand.
Honey maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, yeah.

Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe dear
I guess I might have done something wrong,
Honey I'd be glad to admit it.
Oh, come back home to me!
Honey maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe yeah.

Well I know that it just doesn't ever seem to matter, babe,
Oh honey, when I go out or what I'm trying to do,
'cause I'm still left here
Holding on in needing you.

Please, please, please, please,
Oh won't you reconsider babe.
Come on, I said come back,
Won't you come back to me!

Maybe dear, oh maybe, maybe, maybe dear,
Let me help you show me how.
Honey, maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe,
Maybe, maybe, maybe,
Maybe, maybe, maybe, yeah.
