"Baby Please Don't Go" as written by and Philip Parris Lynott....
Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go down to New Orleans
You know I love you, so, baby, please don't go

Baby, your mind done gone
Well, your mind done gone
Well, your mind done gone, left the county farm
You had the shackles on; baby, please don't go

Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog to get you way down here
I'll make you walk alone; baby, please don't go, hey

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

Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog to get you way down here
Make you walk alone; baby, please don't go

Know how I feel right now?
My baby leavin' on that midnight train, and I'm cryin'

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

Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog to get you way down here
I make you walk alone; baby, please don't go, yeah

All right

    General CommentI spent many years thinking that this was a Stones song after I heard it on Good Morning Vietnam.

    General CommentJust going to throw in that this is a song Morrison did with his band Them, before he went solo.

    General CommentIncluding this one. Old blues number, done by hundreds if not thousands of artists. Fair guess is that Them picked it up from Muddy Waters.
