The way you left me, left me here to cry
Know I love her, she's my desire
She's my desire, she's my desire

Came home this morning about half past 4
Found that note lying on my floor
The way why you left me, you just don't know
You heard some bad talk, something that you said
Something that you said, something that you said

Come on back baby, baby, please don't go
The way I love you you'll never know
You'll never know, you'll never know

My kind of baby, you know it's so
I ain't going to tell you and it ain't no joke
No it ain't no joke, no it ain't no joke
It ain't no joke

Come on back baby, you know you done me wrong
You know I love you, please come on home
Come on back homc, come on back home

Come on back homc, come on back home

Come on back home




I played Little Walter's Hate to See You Go to the band in rehearsals many years ago, because I really love this song. Charlie was fascinated by the drumming.

- Mick Jagger, 2016
