Roll in My Sweet Baby's Arms Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I ain't gonna work on the railroad
I ain't gonna work on the farm
I'll lay around the shack till the mail train comes
Back
I'm rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Verse 2
Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Gonna lay around the shack till the mail train comes
Back
I'm rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Verse 3
Now where was you last Friday night while I was lyin'
In jail
Walkin' the streets with another man you wouldn't even
Go my bail
Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms...
Verse 4
Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Gonna lay around the shack till the mail train comes
Back
I'm rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Verse 5
Sister's a beauty operator
Mamma can weave and can spin
Dad owns an interest in that old cotton mill
Ought to watch that old cotton rolls in
Verse 6
Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Gonna lay around the shack till the mail train comes
Back
I'm rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
