​If I Had Any Sense I'd Go Back Home

This song is by Louis Jordan and appears on the compilation album One Guy Named Louis (1992) by ​Louis Jordan and His Tympany Five.

I remember the day I caught the train
I was standin' out at the rail road crossing soakin' wet with rain
Now I realized fortune and fame is not for me
And all those pretty stories ain't what they're cooked up to be

I know every move I made was wrong
If I had any sense I'd go back home

Yeah, my mother stood cryin', my father had an achin' heart
He said, “Girl, girl, please don't let us partâ€
My sweetheart stood cryin' and I cried a little bit too
But I didn't have the will power to stop, I had to do what I had to do

Now I realize every move I made was wrong
If I had any sense I'd go back home

My baby wrote me said
€œBaby, baby, come back to your good man's side"
But I can't go back now, I got too much pride
I'm havin' so much trouble I don't know what to do
There's nothin' but my mother and father's prayers that's seein' me through

I know I stayed away too long
If I had any sense I'd go back home

My baby wrote me said
€œBaby, baby, Please come back to your good man's side"
But I can't go back now, I got too much pride
I'm havin' so much trouble I don't know what to do
There's nothin' but my mother and father's prayers that's seein' me through

I know I stayed away too long
If I had any sense I'd go back home
