Big Sister, Little Sister

This song is by Loretta Lynn and appears on the album Woman of the World/To Make a Man (1969).

(Give up to the baby that's what they'd always say)
And big sister would let her path away
We shared a sandbox, little sister and me
I was her big sister and she was only three.

Give up to the baby, that's what they'd always say
And big sister would let her path away
All through our childhood and our high school days
My little sister always had to have her way.

Now I can't hurt the baby and I can't let him go
Be brave big sister this time and say no
Now all that I remember as they drove out of sight
Just married and her holdin' the ones I love so tight.

Now all I do is rock my darling, I just can't let her cry
So rock a bye baby, rock a bye
Give up to the baby and I'd lose every time
Now they're saying big sister is losin' her mind...
