Waylon Jennings – Lucille (You Won’t Do Your Daddy’s Will) Lyrics

Lucille won’t you do your daddy’s will
Oh Lucille, just won’t you do your daddy’s will
Well, it ain’t nothin’ to you, I love you still.

Oh Lucille, please come back where you belong
Oh Lucille, please come back where you belong
I’ve been good to you baby, please don’t leave me alone.

Well, I woke up this morning, Lucille was not in sight
I asked her friends about her but all their lips were tight.

Lucille, won’t you do your daddy’s will
Oh Lucille, just won’t you do your daddy’s will
Well, it ain’t nothin’ to you, I love you still.

Oh Lucille, please come back where you belong
Oh Lucille, please come back where you belong
I’ve been good to you baby, please don’t leave me alone.

Well, I woke up this morning, Lucille was not in sight
I asked her friends about her but all their lips were tight.

Lucille, please come back where you belong
I been good to you baby, please don’t leave me alone.

Lucille baby satisfy my heart, oh Lucille, baby satisfy my heart
I can’t come around baby, but you gave me such a wonderful start Lucille.
