Here's a set of the "official" lyrics. McTell doesn't deviate too far from them, as I recall (my mp3 of this is out of reach and I don't have a turntable for the vinyl copy).

A Google search for "Call me back, pal o' mine" (not of) will bring up additional hits.

Hi bluerabbit,

Any chance of getting a copy of that MP3 emailed to me? I'll send you a private message with my address.

I'll bet that some other folkie folks would also be interested. McTell was one of the greats.

There's a set on youtube from 1949: Blind Willie McTell - Pal Of Mine. Here's the text (fairly accurate I think).

Mick



PAL OF MINE
(Harold Dixon)


I am thinking today
Of my loved one far away
One that we used to know.
One so kind and true
Lover I'm always thinking of you
Even though it's back in those days of long ago.

Chorus:
Call me back, Pal O' mine,
Let me live there once again.
Call me back there to your heart, Pal O' mine, O Pal O' mine.
Let me thrill with a charm
While I linger in your arm
As I did in those days have gone by.
Let me roam once again
Down in old lovers' lane
I'll kiss your love lips so divine.
Let me gaze in your eyes,
While I find Paradise,
Call me back to your heart, Pal O' mine.

Call me back, Pal O' mine,
Let me, once again,
Let me live there once again O dear Pal O' mine.
Let me thrill you with a charm
Whilst I linger there in your arm
As I did in them old lonely days went by.
Let me roam once again
Down in old lover's lane
And I'll kiss your sweet lips so divine, so divine
Let me gaze there in your eyes,
While I find Paradise,
Call me back to your sweet heart, Pal O' mine.


Now call me back now, Pal O' mine,
While I say "So long"
Maybe then I'll see you all alone
I'm gonna gaze there in your eyes,
But I'm gonna leave you, darling, in Paradise,
But call me back now to your heart, sweet Pal O' mine.
