Go To Sleep You Little Baby Lyrics

go to sleep you little baby
go to sleep you little baby

your momma gone away and your daddys gone to stay
didn't leave nobody but the baby

go to sleep you little baby
go to sleep you little baby

everybody's gone in the cotton and the corn
didn't leave nobody but the baby

you're a sweet little baby
you're a sweet little baby

honey on a rock and the sugar don't stop
gonna bring the bottle to the baby

don't you weep pretty baby
don't you weep pretty baby

shes long gone with her red shoes on
gonna need another loving baby

don't you weep pretty baby
don't you weep pretty baby

you and me and the devil makes three
don't need no other loving baby

go to sleep you little baby
go to sleep you little baby

come lay your bones on the alabaster stones
and be my ever loving baby

The family belonged to a slave trader, the mother was sold, marching away with her bloody feet from hard work, and the father is dead. The baby is poisoned because no one can care for it.

Look up Lilith and Lullaby for the real answer.From wikipedia- In Biblical tradition, Lilith was a demon who was believed to steal children's souls...the term may come from Lilith bye or Lilith Abi

I think it means that the mother ran away leaving the baby alone with the father. Afterwards finding mother dead on the stone.
