Roll In My Sweet Baby's Arms

Bill Monroe   

 

A                                                                                                      E

I ain't gonna work on the railroad - Ain't gonna work on the farm

A                                                            D

Gonna lay around the shack - Till the mail train comes back

        E                                     A

And roll in my sweet baby's arms

 

<CHORUS>

          A                                                                                             E

          Roll in my sweet baby's arms Roll in my sweet baby's arms         

          A                                               D

          Lay round the shack Till the mail train comes back

E                       A

          And  roll in my sweet baby's arms

 

 

Where were you last Friday night - While I was lyin' down in jail                    

Out walking the street with another man - Wouldn't even try to go my bail

 

<CHORUS>

 

Mama was a beauty operator - Sister, she could weave and spin

Daddy's got an interest in an old cotton mill - Sit and watch that money roll in

 

<CHORUS>

 

Now I know your parents don't like me - They run me away from your door

If I had my life to live over again - I wouldn't go back there any more

 

<CHORUS>

<CHORUS>
