Bill Bailey
(Hughie Cannon, Lawrence Alan Shragge)

Won’t you come home, Bill Bailey, won’t you come home
I’ve moaned the whole night long
I’ll do the cooking, honey, I’ll pay the rent
I know I done you wrong

You remember that rainy evening
I threw you out….with nothing but a fine tooth comb
Ya, I know I’m to blame, now… ain’t it a shame
Bill Bailey, won’t you please come home

Won’t you come home, Bill Bailey, won’t you come on home
I’ve moaned that whole day long
I’ll do all the cooking honey, I’ll even pay the rent
I know, that I have done you, oh so, wrong

You remember that rainy evening
I throwed you out, with nothing but a fine tooth comb
I know I’m to blame, now… ain’t it a shame
So baby, won’t you please come

I said now, won’t you please come
Bill Bailey, won’t you please…. come on home
