Prisoner Blues

Lyrics By: Traditional
Music By: Traditional

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

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