Baby

This song is by Steve Forbert and appears on the album Jackrabbit Slim (1979).

(Long Instrumental Intro)

The world is new in your newborn eyes
You got no shame and you tell no lies
Your slate is clean and your mind is free
Your soul is pure, let it shine on me

Let it shine, oh baby, baby
Let it shine,
Yes, let the whole thing be
Let it shine,
Baby

A concrete town and a deep blue sea
A highway sign and some lonesome trees
The mountains reach and the rivers flow
They wait for you in the year's too long

Let it shine, ya baby, baby
Let it shine,
Let the whole thing be
Let it shine,
Ah, baby

Prayers up to god
Prayers up to god
Prayers up to god to your soul for the key

Sad old city moon
Sad old city moon
Sad old city moon
Sit down, down watched you sleep
Yes, you little baby

You'll travel up and you'll travel down
Walk the road while the world spins around
With twinkling stars high above your head
You'll live and love and you'll end up dead

Let it shine, oh baby, baby
Let it shine,
Yes, let the whole thing be
Let it shine,
Ah, baby
