I'm Going Back Home

This song is by Memphis Minnie and Kansas Joe McCoy and appears on the compilation The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of (2006) and on the album Travelling Blues (2009) by Memphis Minnie.

When I was at home I was rested and at ease
Now you got me here you try to mistreat me
I'm going back home I'm going back home
I'm going back home where I know I get better care

Oh mercy dear you cause my heart, been at long that we must part
Trying to love you most all the rest
You're leaving me breaking happiness
Oh honey baby mama please don't go

I've got somthin’ to tell you, I know it's gonna break your heart
We been together good while but now we've got to part
I'm going back home I'm going back home
I'm going back home where I know I get better care

I'll count the hours lil' while you're gone
Think of you wish you back home
Oh mercy dear please don't go
I'm asking you dear honey baby mama please don't go

I done told you once I done told you twice
If you don't mind you gonna lose your life
I'm going back home I'm going back home
I'm going back home where I know I get better care

My lonesome heart will shake with fear
Every hour that you call my name
Let every ___ represent himself, I'm not at ease with anyone else
Oh honey baby mama please don't go

You ought’a told me that two three weeks ago
Now when you had your money started that you wouldn't get broke
I'm going back home I'm going back home
I'm going back home where I know I get better care

I'll hang along where you ever go, I'm asking you dear please don't go
I'll tell you this, ain't gonna tell no lie
Day you leave me that's the day you'll die
Oh honey baby mama please don't go
