Mommy Please Stay Home With Me  Eddy Arnold

A mother went ou[C]t on a party[F] [C]
She left at home her baby [G7]son
He cried and [C]begged her [F]not to [C]leave him
But she would not [G7]give up her [C]fun
She kissed his cheek and [F]tried to [C]soothe him
But would not heed his childish [G7]plea
She heard him [C]call as [F]she was [C]leaving
Please mommy please stay [G7]home with [C]me
The mother joined [F]the merry[C]makers
And soon was lost in trifling [G7]joy
The mellow [C]tunes and [F]flitting [C]shadows
M[G7]ade[C] her forget her baby boy
She danced and laughed and [F]did some [C]drinking
The world for her was full of [G7]glee
But now and [C]then these words [F]would haunt [C]her
Please mommy please stay [G7]home with [C]me
She left the party [F]feeling [C]dizzy
The smell of drinking on her [G7]breath
She hurried [C]home to [F]find her [C]baby
In raging pain and [G7]nearing [C]death
The doctor came and [F]looked on [C]sadly
The case was hopeless he could [G7]see
The baby [C]died these [F]words r[C]epeating
Please mommy please stay [G7]home with [C]me
The mother now her [F]life would [C]forfeit
To hear her baby's voice [G7]again
She grieved to [C]think she [F]rudely left [C]him
To satisfy her [G7]wishes [C]vein
Now mothers don't [F]neglect your [C]duty
This story should a lesson [G7]be
Do not [C]ignore your [F]baby's [C]pleading
Please mommy please stay [G7]home with [C]me
