Bill Bailey (Won’t you please come home) Written by Hughy Cannon
Won’t you come home, Bill Bailey
won’t you come home
I moan the whole night long
I’ll do the cookin’, honey, I’ll pay the rent
I know I’ve done you wrong
Remember that rainy evening I put you out
nothin’ but a fine tooth comb
Well ain’t that a shame, I know I’m to blame,
Bill Bailey, won’t you please come home.
