FCS Daily Music Video – ‘Baby Please Don’t Go’ (Big Joe Joe Williams 1935) Van Morrison and Them

Delta blues musician Big Joe Williams

Them were a Northern Irish band formed in Belfast in April 1964, most prominently known for the garage rock standard “Gloria” and launching singer Van Morrison’s musical career. The group was marketed in the United States as part of the British Invasion. Although Them had a short-lived existence, the Belfast group had considerable influence on other bands, such as The Doors.

Lyrics below

Baby, please don’t go
Baby, please don’t go
Baby, please don’t go down to New Orleans
You know I love you so
Baby, please don’t go

Baby, your man done gone
Well, your man done gone
Well, your man done gone, left the county farm
He had his shackles on
Baby, please don’t go

Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog to get you way down here
I make you walk alone
Baby, please don’t go
Hey

Baby, please don’t go
Baby, please don’t go
Baby, please don’t go down to New Orleans
You know I love you so
Baby, please don’t go

Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog get you way down here
Make you walk alone
Baby, please don’t go

Know how I feel right now
My baby leavin’, on that midnight train
And I’m cryin’

Baby, please don’t go
Oh, baby please don’t go
Baby, please don’t go down to New Orleans
You know I love you so
Baby, please don’t go, yeah

Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog
Before I be your dog to get you way down here
I make you walk alone
Baby, please don’t go, yeah
