DIDN'T LEAVE NOBODY BUT THE BABY
Emmylou Harris


Go to sleep you little babe

Go to sleep you little babe

Your mama's gone away and your daddy's gonna stay

Didn't leave nobody but the baby


Go to sleep you little babe

Go to sleep you little babe

Everybody's gone in the cotton and the corn

Didn't leave nobody but the baby


You're sweet little babe

You're sweet little babe

Honey in the rock and the sugar don't stop

Gonna' bring a bottle to the baby


Don't you weep pretty babe

Don't you weep pretty babe

She's long gone with her red shoes on

Gonna' need another lovin' baby


Go to sleep you little babe

Go to sleep you little babe

You and me and the Devil makes three

Don't need no other lovin' baby


Go to sleep you little babe

Go to sleep you little babe

Come and lay your bones on the alabaster stones

And be my ever-lovin' baby
