Blind Lemon Jefferson – That Crawling Baby Blues lyrics

Heard a baby crying, what do this mama mean
Heard a baby crying, what do this mama mean
He's crying 'bout his sweet milk, and she won't feed him Jersey cream

Well, he crawled from the fireplace, stopped in the middle of the floor
Well, he crawled from the fireplace, stopped in the middle of the floor
Says, "Mama, ain't that your second daddy standing back there in the door?"

Well she grabbed my baby, spanked him and tried to make her leave him alone
Well she grabbed my baby, spanked him and tried to make her leave him alone
I tried my best to stop her and she said, "The babe ain't none of mine"

The woman rocks the cradle,
I declare she rules the home
The woman rocks the cradle,
I declare she rules the home
Married man rocks some other man's babe, fool thinks he is rockin' his own
