Baby Please Don't Go

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Played once by Garcia and Saunders in 1972, with Roger Troy on vocals. Thanks to Matt Schofield for the lyrics.

Also recorded in a slightly different version by Pigpen for an unreleased sos album.

Baby please don't go
Baby please don't go
Baby please don't go down in New Orleans 'cause I love you so

Must be a dog
Must be a dog
Must be a dog when you come down here, make you [walk the floor]
Baby please don't go

Well your man done gone
Well your man done gone
Well your man done gone to the county farm, he got the shackles on
Baby please don't go

Baby please don't go
Baby please don't go
Baby please don't go down in New Orleans 'cause I love you so
Baby please don't go

Don't be a dog
Don't be a dog
Don't be no dog, make me come down here, make you [walk the floor]
Baby please don't go

Baby please don't go
Baby please don't go
Baby please don't go down in New Orleans 'cause I love you so
Baby please don't go
Pigpen's solo version is:
Baby please don't go
Baby please don't go
Baby please don't go down in New Orleans 'cause I love you so

Well your man done gone
Well your man done gone
Well done man done gone down the county farm, got the shackles on

You make me walk the log
You make me walk the log
You make me walk the log, treat me like a dog, baby please don't go

Na na don't go
Na na don't go
Na na don't go, down in New Orleans 'cause I love you so

Well your man done gone
Well your man done gone
Well done man done gone down the county farm, got the shackles on

Well your man done gone
Well your man done gone
Well done man done gone down the county farm, got the shackles on

Baby please don't go
Baby please don't go
Baby please don't go down the county farm, I got the shackles on

All your friends done gone
All your friends done gone
All your friends done gone down the county farm, they got the shackles on
