Didn't Leave Nobody but the Baby

This song is by Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss and Gillian Welch and appears on the movie soundtrack O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000).

Go to sleep you little baby (Go to sleep you little baby)
Go to sleep you little baby (Go to sleep you little baby)
You're mama's gone away and you're daddy's gonna stay
Didn't leave nobody but the baby

Go to sleep you little baby (Go to sleep you little baby)
Go to sleep you little baby (Go to sleep you little baby)
Everybody's gone and the cotton and the corn
Didn't leave nobody but the baby

You're a sweet little baby (You're a sweet little baby)
You're a sweet little baby (You're a sweet little baby)
Honey and the rock and the sugar don't stock
Gonna bring a bottle to the baby

Don't you weep pretty baby (Don't you weep pretty 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 lovin' baby

Go to sleep you little baby (Go to sleep you little baby)
Go to sleep you little baby (Go to sleep you 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)
Go to sleep you little baby (Go to sleep you little baby)
Come on lay your bones on the alabaster stones
And be my everlovin' baby
