"Please Call Home" as written by and Gregg L. Allman....
Take one last look, before you leave,
'Cause oh, somehow it means so much to me.
And if you'll ever need me, you know where I'll be.
So, please, call home if ya change your mind.
Oh, I don't mind.

I guess I saw it comin' day by day.
But, oh, I could not stand the failure.
Before you leave, there's just one thing I must say,
Please, call home if ya change your mind.
Oh, I don't mind.

And I know, you're used to runnin'.
Oh, you're lost baby, and I ain't funnin'.
But, oh, when you call to me, well, I'll come runnin',
Straight to your side, again I'll confide in you.

So, go on, I won't say no more.
My heart ain't in it, but I'll hold the door.
But, just remember what I said before.
Please, call home if ya change your mind.
Please, call home if ya change your mind.
Oh yeah, call home if ya change your mind.
Call home if ya change your mind, oh.
Please, call home if ya change your mind.
Oh yeah, call home baby.
Mmm-hmm

    General CommentCan't believe nobody's commented on this song yet!! One of my favorite Allman Bro. songs.

    Its about a girl breaking up with him or choosing to leave. He respects her decision because he loves her so much and "holds the door open" for her. But reminds her that he will always be there for her.


    "But just remember, what I said before.
    Please call home... if you change your mind."

    sends shivers down my spine.

    General CommentI guess this chivalry/devotion shit makes for a good song. Definatly not the way to be in real life.

    Excellent guitar playing by Duane Allman. Duane had a light to him. Derek and Warren are probably the best replacements alive, but Duane was one of a kind. I'm envious of any of you that got to see him live.

    It sounds like he's mostly alternating major and minor pentatonic scales. My guitar playing is missing that sound. Time to go back to the "basics".
