Come Back Baby

Come back baby, baby please don't go

Well I love you, and I want the world to know

Come back baby

Let's talk it over

One more time

This old world wasn't made in one day

Come back baby, don't go away

Come back baby

Let's talk it over

One more time

You know it's been a long time since I saw you smile

Makes me think of the time you was a child

Come back baby

Let's talk it over

One more time

If you ain't coming back baby, please let me know

Then I won't have to worry about you not coming back no more

Come back baby

Let's talk it over

One more time

It is not clear that this was ever played by the Dead: the listing for 19 May 1966 at the Avalon Ballroom is a mistake for Tastebud. It was played as an instrumental on 11 November 1970 with members of Hot Tuna, who also recorded this song. These lyrics are from a Lightnin' Hopkins version
