verse 1: A She never had a mother, A She hardly knew her dad. A She's been in town for 18 years, A And I'm the only boy she's had. Bm Baby, I can't stay. A Oh, maybe I'll come back someday.verse 2: A I never had no money, A I bought at the second-hand store. A The way this old town laughs at me, A I just can't take it no more. Bm Said she can't stay. A You're gonna be a lady someday.Bm Oh baby, don't go, A Pretty baby please don't go. Bm A I love you so, pretty baby please don't go.verse 3: A When she gets to the city, A Her tears will all be dry. A My eyes will look so pretty, A No-one's gonna know I cried. Bm She's goin' away, A And maybe she'll come back someday. *REPEAT Chorus* (to end of song)Bm Oh baby, don't go, A Pretty baby please don't go. Bm A I love you so, pretty baby please don't go.
