Janis Joplin & The Kozmic Blues Band – Maybe [Live] lyrics

Alright, alright, this is an old, old rock 'n roll tune
It was done by The Chantells in the 50's
A song called, Maybe

Maybe if I could pray and I try, dear
You might come back home, home to me
Honey, maybe if I could ever hold your hand
You just might understand

Honey maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, yeah

Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe dear
I guess I might have done somethin' wrong
I'd be glad to admit it, oh come back home to me

Honey maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, yeah

But I know that it just doesn't ever seem to matter, babe
Oh honey, when I go out or what I'm tryin' to do
'Cause I'm still left here holdin' on, honey needin' 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
