Alison Krauss – Baby Mine lyrics

Baby mine, don't you cry.
Baby mine, dry your eyes.
Rest your head close to my heart,
Never to part,
Baby of mine.

Little one when you play,
Don't you mind what they say.
Let those eyes sparkle and shine,
Never a tear,
Baby of mine.

If they knew sweet little you,
They'd end up loving you too.
All those same people who scold you
What they'd give just for the right to hold you.

From your head down to your toes,
You're not much, goodness knows.
But you're so precious to me,
Sweet as can be,
Baby of mine.

All those same people who scold you,
What they'd give just for the right to hold you.

From your head down to your toes
You're not much, goodness knows.
But you're so precious to me,
Sweet as can be,
Baby of mine.
Baby of mine

    I'm a 21 year old college student who still cries like a baby when this song plays. My mother and I would lay on the couch together watching dumbo when I was little and would cry together when this song would play. Now that I've grown and moved away, it makes me miss my mother so damn much. It makes me long to be able to go back in time just to be able to relive those precious moments I hold near and dear in my heart. I love you mom!

    I'm unable to have babies, but I'm one lucky mom to a young beagle/hound mix. We rescued her when she was 3mths old. She is a beautiful, crazy, active, funny, loving, most precious "dog" I've ever known. This song melts my heart when I think of her & how others don't have patience & love for her like we do. Because she's hyper & wild, people don't often get to see the loving angel who cuddles up with us at night or the dedicating love in her big brown eyes. She's so precious to me, sweet as can be, baby of mine!

    I was a nanny for 3 years to a sweet young boy. He had a disorder on the autistic spectrum and could not speak or do many things on his. He was my baby. I sang songs to him every night. "crazy" by patsy cline, "somewhere over the rainbow". He tried to sing alone with me. He would have loved this song. He loved the very soft songs. I feel him when I hear this song. Nannying is so hard sometimes, but moving on was tragic. I miss him dearly.
