Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go
Back to New Orlean
'Cause I love you so
Baby, please

She got me way down here
She got me way down here
She got me way down here
By Rolling Fork
She treat me like a dog

I b'lieve your man done come
I b'lieve your man done come
I b'lieve your man done come
From the country farm
He got his shackles on

'Fore I be yo' dog
'Fore I be yo' dog
'Fore I be yo' dog
I get you way down here
I make you walk the log

'Play it for me now, while I get me a cigarette'

(slide guitar)

Yeah! Yeah!

'She might not go!'

I b'lieve your man done come
I b'lieve your man done come
I b'lieve your man done come
From the county farm
He got his shackles on

Turn your lamp down, low
Turn your lamp down, low
Turn your lamp down, low
If it's all night long
Baby, please don't go

'Play it while I think it over!'

(side guitar)

I b'lieve your man done come
I b'lieve your man done come
I b'lieve your man done come
From the county farm
He got his shackles on
Baby, please don't go

'Stretch it out, now play it good for me!'

Turn your lamp down
Turn your lamp down low
Turn your lamp down low
If it's all night long

She got me way down
She got me way down
She got me way down here
By Rollings Forks
Treat me like a dog

Baby, please don't
Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go
Back to New Orlean
Because I love you, so

Baby, baby here
Baby, please stay home
Baby, please don't go
Back to New Orleans
Because I love you, so

'Fore I be yo' dog
'Fore I be yo' dog
'Fore I be yo' dog
I get you way down here
I make you walk the log

I make you walk the (op!)
I make you walk that log
I make you walk that log
By Rolling Fork
Baby, please don't go

'Don't make her walk the log, boy!'

(slide guitar)

'Till she fall off!'

(slide guitar)

Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go
Back to New Orlean
Because I love you, so

Turn your lamp down
Turn your lamp down, low
Turn your lamp down, low
If it's all night long
Baby, please don't go.
