This electric country-rock gem is highlighted by the walking bass-line and step-along percussion. David's lead vocals tell the story, backed by Ella's harmonies. Nan Wilson Wilkenfeld joins HEDRICK in the studio, rounding out the track with 'oooos'.

lyrics

Hey Babe (Don’t You Want to Go?)
By David Hedrick

Hey babe, don’t you want to go?
Hey babe, don’t you want to go?
Cause I don’t want to be alone no more.

Friday night my girl said to me,
“Boy, I think there’s better things to see.”
She left me there, broken as can be.

So,
Hey babe, don’t you want to go?
Hey babe, don’t you want to go?
Cause I don’t want to be alone no more.

We had a date to the Saturday Jamboree.
All week long, thinking how good it’ll be.
But now it seems I’m loose and fancy free.

So I say,
Hey babe, don’t you want to go?
Hey babe, don’t you want to go?
Cause I don’t want to be alone no more.

All year long I’m thinking that pretty girl
was the one for me;
buy a little cottage, raise a family.
Now it seems my dreams are done
and I am just the lonely one
so, hey now, babe, won’t you go with me?

Hey babe, don’t you want to go?
Hey babe, don’t you want to go?
Cause I don’t want to be alone.
No, I don’t want to be the only one.
I don’t want to be alone no more.
