Roll in My Sweet Baby's Arms

This song is by The Monroe Brothers and appears on the compilation Are You From Dixie? Great Country Brother Teams of the 1930s (1988).

Ain't gonna work on the railroad
Ain't gonna work on a farm
Lay around my 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

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

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

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

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

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

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
