Roll In My Sweet Baby's Arms

This song is by Johnny Paycheck and appears on the album Everybody's Got A Family (1979).

I'm rollin' in my sweet baby's arms rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Lay around the shack till the mail train comes back
I'm rollin' in my sweet baby's arms

I ain't gonna work on the railroad I ain't gonna work on the farm
As a matter of fact, honey I ain't gonna work at all
Got me a woman working in the boss man's yard
I'm rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms...

My mama was a beauty operator
Sister could sew and could spin
Papa owned an interest in that new cotton ...
Just-a watchin' all that money rollin' in.
Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms...

Now where was you last Friday night while I was lyin' in jail
Walkin' the streets with another man you wouldn't even go my bail
Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms...
