I'll Roll in My Sweet Baby's Arms
Ain't gonna work on the railroad
Ain't gonna work on a farm
Lay around the shack
'Til that 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
Lay around my shack
'Til that mail train comes back
Then I'll roll in my sweet baby's arms

Katie was mildly in my hotel lot
She dumped with riding to me
She must think I don't love her like I used to
Ain't that a foolish idea?

Sometimes there's change in the ocean
Sometimes there's change in the sea
Sometimes there change in my hotel lot
But there's never no change in me

My mama was a beauty operator
Sister can weave and can spin
Dad owns an interest in an old cotton nill
And watch that old money roll in

They tell me her parents do not like me
They have drove me away from the door
If I had all my time to go over
I would never go back any more

Where were you last Friday night
When I was lying in gaol?
Walking the streets with another man
Wouldn't even go my bail
