Hi all,
Here are the lyrics for Walter Davis' original version of "Come Back Baby".

Oh, come back, baby, please don't go
Lord, the way I love you, you'll never know
Come back, baby, can't we talk it over one more time?

My heart is full of sorrow, my eyes is full of tears
Lord, we been together for so many years
Come back, baby, can't we talk it over one more time?

You know this world, wasn't made in one day
Can't we talk it over just before you go away?
Come back, baby, can't we talk it over one more time?

Come back, baby, don't break up my home
You know I'm gonna miss you after you've gone
Come back, baby, can't we talk it over one more time?

I begged you all night, all the night before
Please, do never leave me, don't never leave me no more
Come back, baby, can't we talk it over one more time?

Now, you know, babe, you the onliest one I love
Lord, I just as soon to be dead, gone to the Lord above
Come back, baby, can't we talk it over one more time?

All best,
Johnm

Hi all,
Here are the lyrics to Walter Davis's "New Come Back Baby".  If you haven't listened to it, go back to Frank's original post and listen to Walter Davis's solo from 1:09--1:43, it is perfectly amazing; he re-invents the form, and the solo is sort of an object lesson in how big ears and imagination can trump technical fluency.  Walter Davis was never a great piano technician like Blind Leroy Garnett or Montana Taylor, but with the ideas he had, the simple expression of them was completely arresting.  And has there ever been a sadder blues tagline than "Come back, baby, can't we talk it over, one more time"?  There is so much history of difficulty and disappointment in that single short line.

SOLO

Now, you must have a heart like a rock in the sea
I've been beggin' you, baby, baby, please don't leave
Come back, baby, can't we talk it over, one more time?

My nights are getting lonely, my days are getting long
Now, tell me, baby, I did not do no wrong
Come back, baby, can't we talk it over, one more time?

SOLO

I don't want to hurt your feelings, either make you mad
I love you better than anything I ever had
Come back, baby, can't we talk it over, one more time?

I like you, baby, I like to see you smile
But I like to please you, every once in a while
Come back, baby, can't we talk it over, one more time?

OUTRO

All best,
Johnm
