George Jones Roll In My Sweet Baby's Arms Lyrics

Last updated:

[tempo increases with each verse]

Roll in my sweet baby's arms
Roll in my sweet baby's arms
I'll lay around this shack
'Til the mail tain comes back
An' I'll roll in my sweet baby's arms

I ain't gonna work on the railroad
(You ain't gonna work at all if you can help it !)
No, I ain't gonna work on the farm
I'll lay around this shack
'Til the mail train comes back
An' I'll roll in my sweet baby's arms

Roll in my sweet baby's arms
Roll in my sweet baby's arms
I'll lay around this shack
'Til the mail train comes back
An' I'll roll in my sweet baby's arms

TW sings:
My mama was a beauty operator
Sister could sew and could mend
My daddy owned an interest in that old sorghum mill
Just-a watchin' all that money roll in

Roll in my sweet baby's arms (roll in my sweet baby's arms)
Roll in my sweet baby's arms (roll in my sweet baby's arms)
I'll lay around this shack
'Til the mail train comes back
An' I'll roll in my sweet baby's arms

Roll in my sweet baby's arms (roll in my sweet baby's arms)
Roll in my sweet baby's arms (roll in my sweet baby's arms)
I'll lay around this shack
'Til the mail train comes back
An' I'll roll in my sweet baby's arms

Roll in my sweet baby's arms (roll in my sweet baby's arms)
Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms (roll in my sweet baby's arms)
I'll lay around this shack
'Til the mail train comes back
An' I'll roll in my sweet baby's arms

Roll in my sweet baby's arms (roll in my sweet baby's arms)
Roll in my sweet baby's arms (roll in my sweet baby's arms)
I'll lay around this shack
'Til the mail train comes back
An' I'll roll in my sweet baby's arms

FADES-
Roll in my sweet baby's arms (roll in my sweet baby's arms)
Roll in my sweet baby's arms (roll in my sweet baby's arms)
I'll lay around this shack
'Til the mail train comes back
An' I'll roll in my sweet baby's arms
