Lightnin' Hopkins – Don't Keep My Baby Long lyrics

Do you know I took that boy, I've taken him for my best
But he done took my little woman, you know he must be an
Enemy I don't trust
Yes if he don't care if my little girl waits, please
Don't keep my baby long

Maybe I may hear from her, maybe I may hear from her one
Maybe I may hear from her, maybe I may hear from her one
And if she don't find me, baby you don't do what you say

Well I woke up this mornin' just about the break of day
I went to get some milk, all gone away
Oh little woman, hope you'll come back some day,
And when you do, please change your low down ways
