"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

Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog
I get you way'd out here, and let you walk alone

Turn your lamp down low
Turn your lamp down low
Turn your lamp down low
I beg you all night long, baby, please don't go

You know your man down gone
You know your man down gone
You know your man down gone
Down the country farm, with all the shackles on

You brought me way down here
You brought me way down here
You brought me way down here
'Bout to Rolling Forks, you treat me like a dog

Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go
Baby, please don't go
Down to New Orleans, I beg you all night long

    General CommentThis song was written and originally recorded by Big Joe Williams although Muddy Waters, and many others, recorded it.
    Sadly the influential Muddy Waters penned "Rolling Stone Blues" isn't listed here - it inspired a rock bands name, a Bob Dylan song's name and an excellent version by Paul Rodgers.
