Papa Ain’t Salty – T-Bone Walker!

Come home little girl
Your papa ain’t salty no more
Come home little girl
Your papa ain’t salty no more
I need your love and I swear I miss you so

I know I was wrong
And I know I’ve caused you pains
I know I was wrong
And I’ve caused you pains
I’m sorry pretty baby, I won’t do that again

Solo

Why or why pretty baby
Why did you have to go
Why or why pretty baby
Why did you have to go
Please come back home pretty mama, Papa ain’t salty no more
