Summertime, time, time,
Child, the living’s easy.
Fish are jumping out
And the cotton, Lord,
Cotton’s high, Lord so high.
Your daddy’s rich
And your ma is so good-looking, baby.
She’s a-looking good now,
Hush, baby, baby, baby, baby now,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no,
Don’t you cry, don’t you cry.
One of these mornings
You’re gonna rise, rise up singing,
You’re gonna spread your wings, child,
And take, take to the sky,
Lord, the sky.
But until that morning,
Honey, n-n-nothing’s going to harm ya,
No, no, no no, no no, no…
Don’t you cry — cry.
Oh if I could pray and I try, dear,
You might come back home, home to me.
Whoa, if I could ever hold your hand
Ooh you just might understand.
Honey maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, yeah.
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe dear
I guess I might have done something wrong,
Honey I’d be glad to admit it.
Oh, come back home to me!
Honey maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe yeah.
Well I know that it just doesn’t ever seem to matter, babe,
Oh honey, when I go out or what I’m trying to do,
’cause I’m still left here
Holding on in needing you.
Please, please, please, please,
Oh won’t you reconsider babe.
Come on, I said come back,
Won’t you come back to me!
Maybe dear, oh maybe, maybe, maybe dear,
Let me help you show me how.
Honey, maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe,
Maybe, maybe, maybe,
Maybe, maybe, maybe, yeah.
