"Roll In My Sweet Baby's Arms"

I roll in my sweet baby's arms
I roll in my sweet baby's arms
I lay around the shack till the mail train comes back
And I roll in my sweet baby's...

Well, I ain't gonna work on no railroad, baby
Ain't gonna work on no farm
I'm gonna lay around the shack till the mail train comes back
And I'm rollin' in my sweet baby's arms.

I roll in my sweet baby's arms
Roll in my sweet baby's arms
I come lay around the shack till the mail train comes back
And I'm rollin' in my sweet baby's arms.

My mama was a beauty operator
Sister could sew and could spin
My daddy owned an interest in that new cotton...
Just-a watchin' all that money rollin' in.

I roll in my sweet baby's arms
Roll in my sweet baby's arms
I come lay around the shack till the mail train comes back
And I'm rollin' in my sweet baby's arms.

Oh, I know that your parents they don't like me
They roll me away from your door
Help me find my life to live over
And I never go there no more.

I roll in my sweet baby's arms
Roll in my sweet baby's arms
I come lay around the shack till the mail train comes back
And I'm rollin' in my sweet baby's arms.

Well now, where were you last Saturday night, baby ?
While I was lyin' around down in jail ?
... walking with another man
He wouldn't even go my bail, so now...

I roll in my sweet baby's arms
Roll in my sweet baby's arms
I come lay around the shack till the mail train comes back
And I'm rollin' in my sweet baby's arms.

I roll in my sweet baby's arms
Roll in my sweet baby's arms
I come lay around the shack till the mail train comes back
And I'm rollin' in my sweet baby, rollin' in my sweet baby , rollin' in my sweet babys arms.
