Prisoner Blues

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

This was sung twice by Elvin Bishop with the Dead during Mickey and the Hartbeats shows

Baby please, baby please come back to me
Baby please, baby please come back to me
'Cause you know I am your prisoner
And I need your love to set me free

I woke up early one morning, before the break of day
I looked down on my bed beside me and my baby has gone away
Baby please, baby please come back to me
'Cause you know I am your prisoner
And I need your love to set me free

Well I know my tears are wasted, I know I'm crying in vain
I know I've lost my baby but I love her just the same
I'm crying baby please, baby please come back to me
'Cause you know I am your prisoner
And I need your love to set me free

Baby please, baby please come back to me
Baby please, baby please come back to me
'Cause you know I am your prisoner
And I need your love to set me free
