Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go
A'baby, please don't go down to New Orleans
I love you so
Baby, please don't go

Well your man done gone
Well your man done gone
Well your man done gone down the county farm
He had shackles on
Baby, please don't go

Before I'll be your dog
Before I'll be your dog
Before I'll be your dog, getcha way down here
'N make you walk the log
Baby, please don't go

A'baby, please don't go
A'baby, please don't go
A'baby, please don't go down to New Orleans
I love you so
Baby, please don't go, yeah

Hit me

This song is by Big Joe Williams
From down in Crawford, Mississippi
Lord Got he must've sold a million
Now got to meet him one time
About a year before he died, yeah

I was standing in the Mississippi
Sun was shinin' down on me
Waitin' for him to arrive
Directly after a while, my eyes could clearly see
Big Joe behind the wheel of a Plymouth Fury 3
I was makin' up the driveway looking at me
I knew pretty soon we'd be keeping company

I wanted to talk to him, yeah
I got the chance and I said
I said well, get ready
"Hey, Big Joe, hey, Big Joe, hey, Big Joe, hey, Big Joe
What are your favorite songs you ever recorded?
Your favorite songs you ever recorded?
Your favorite songs you ever recorded?
Your favorite songs you ever recorded?"
And he said, "Baby, Please don't go"
Highway 49, people still love that"
I said, "Didn't Howling Wolf, do Highway 49?"
Big Joe said, "Huh! He tried"

Before I'll be your dog
Before I'll be your dog, woof
Before I'll be your dog, I'll get you way down here
I'll make you walk the log
Baby, please don't go

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