Emmylou Harris Didn't Leave Nothing But The Baby Lyrics

Last updated: 02/13/2006 10:00:00 AM

go to sleep you little baby
go to sleep you little baby
your momma's gone away and your daddy's gonna stay
don't leave nobody but the baby

go to sleep you little baby
go to sleep you little baby
everybody's gone in the cotton and the corn
didn't leave nobody but the baby

your sweet little baby
your sweet little baby
honey in the rock and the sugar don't stop
gonna bring a bottle to the baby

don't you weep pretty baby
don't you weep pretty baby
she's long gone with her red shoes on
gonna need another loving baby

go to sleep little baby
go to sleep little baby
you and me and the devil makes three
don't need no other loving baby

go to sleep you little baby
go to sleep you little baby
come and lay your bones on the alabaster stones
and be my ever loving baby
