Now, baby please don't go
Now, baby please don't go home
Baby, please don't go
Back to New Orleans
And get your cold ice cream

I b'lieve that a man done gone
I b'lieve that a man done gone
I b'lieve that a man done gone
To the county farm
Now, with his long chain on

Turn your lamp down low
You turn your lamp down low
Turn your lamp down low
I cried all night long
Now, baby please don't go

I begged you night befo'
I begged you night befo'
Begged you night befo'
Turn your lamp down low
Now, baby please don't go

I b'lieve my baby done lied
I b'lieve my baby done lied
I b'lieve my baby she lied
Says she didn't have a man
Now, while I had my time

'Fore I'd be yo' dog
'Play! '
I swore I'd leave your do'
'Fore I'd be yo' dog
I'd pack my trunk this mo'nin, baby
Go back to Rolling Fork, umm

I b'lieve I'll leave, here
I b'lieve I'll leave you here
I b'lieve I'll leaves you here
'Cause you got me way up here
An you don't feel my care

Now, baby please don't go
Oh baby, please don't go, umm
Now, baby please don't go
Back to New Orleans
Even though I love you so

I b'lieve you tryin' just leave me here
Why leave yo' daddy, here?
Why leave yo' daddy, here?
You got me way down here
An you don't feel my care.
