Why won't you come baby?
Why won't you come when I call?
Why won't you come baby?
Why won't you come when I call?
I'm not up to something funny,
I just want to know you girl is all.

You've got to know baby,
everybody's free sometime.
You've got to know baby,
everybody's free sometime.
Could you get to spare a moment?
I can't seem to get you off my mind.

Friday night you're busy; something else to do.
Saturday you're sleepin',
you've got work on Sunday too.
Why won't you come baby?
Why won't you come when I call?
I'm not up to something funny,
I just want to know you girl is all.

Keep the motor runnin',
leave you're jacket on.
If I had my way you would be drivin' home at dawn.
Why won't you come baby?
Why won't you come when I call?
I'm not up to something funny,
I just want to know you girl is all.

Why won't you come baby?
Why won't you come when I call?
Why won't you come baby?
Why won't you come when I call?
I'm not up to something funny,
I just want to know you girl is all.

    General CommentPure Blues. Chasin' tail has never been made a more indifferent sentiment! It says "I know you're avoiding me but it's really bullshit. Sooner or later we're going to get down to it so stop fighting."

    I'm so glad John stopped fighting his impulses... "Come Back to Bed" was SOOO close. THIS is how blues in the new century should start.

    General CommentGreat song. I saw the JMT in Nashville last week and it was amazing. I love this new blues direction. This was my favorite song of the night, and it literally gave me goosebumps. You know it's awesome when someone can take such an awkward time in a relationship and make it feel so powerful.
