Baby Won’t You Please Come Home Lyrics

Baby won’t you please come home
‘Cause your mama’s all alone
I have cried in vain, never no more to call your name

When you left you broke my heart
‘Cause I never thought we’d part
Every hour in the day you hear me say
Baby please come home, baby please come home

Baby won’t you please come home
‘Cause your mama’s all alone
I have cried in vain, never no more to call your name

When you left you broke my heart
‘Cause I never thought we’d part
‘Cause every hour in the day you hear me say
Baby, please come home, baby please come on home

I said baby please come on home
