Tell Riley, Baby, next time he come to town
If he needs somewhere to lay ? lay his body down
Tell Riley he's welcome to stay ?
Mark my words, he's gonna be big someday

I'm leavin' Memphis ? Ol' Booker's got to go
Mister Melrose sent a telegram from Chicago
That's the man makin' records on me ?
Wants to make some more ?
Gonna sing my song ?til my throat gets sore

So, Tell Riley, Baby, next time he come to town
If he needs somewhere to lay ? lay his pallet down
Tell Riley he's welcome to stay ?
Mark my words, he's gonna be big someday

Foldn' money an' a fancy dress for your when I get back
Sho' beats workin' on Parchman Farm ?
That's a natural fact ?
Lester Melrose, he fixed my parole
I thank him with my heart an' soul
I'm so glad to be a free man again

Tell Riley, Baby, next time he come to town
If he needs somewhere to lay ? lay his pallet down
Tell Riley Uncle Booker said he could stay ?
An' mark my words ? mark my words ? mark my words
He'll B.B. King someday
