EMMYLOU HARRIS


Didn't Leave Nobody But The Baby Lyrics

Go to sleep, you little baby
Go to sleep, you little baby
Your momma's gone away
And your daddy's gonna stay

Go to sleep, you little baby
Go to sleep, you little baby
Everybody's gone in the cotton and the corn

You're a sweet little baby
You're a sweet little baby
Honey in the rock and the sugar don't stop
Gonna bring a bottle to the baby

Don't you weep pretty baby
Don't you weep pretty baby
She's long gone with her red shoes on
Gonna need another loving baby

Go to sleep, little baby
Go to sleep, little baby
You and me and the devil makes three
Don't need no other lovin' baby

Go to sleep, you little baby
Go to sleep, you little baby
Come lay bones on the alabaster stones
And be my ever lovin' baby
