Roll in my sweet baby's arms
Roll in my sweet baby's arms
I'll lay around this shack
Till the mail train comes back
And I'll roll in my sweet baby's arms

I ain't gonna work on the railroad
(You ain't gonna work at all if you can help it)
No, I ain't gonna work on the farm
I'll lay around this shack
Till the mail train comes back
And I'll roll in my sweet baby's arms

Roll in my sweet baby's arms
Roll in my sweet baby's arms
I'll lay around this shack
Till the mail train comes back
And I'll roll in my sweet baby's arms

My mama was a beauty operator
Sister could sew and could mend
My daddy owned an interest
In that old sorghum mill
Just-a watchin' all that money roll in

Roll in my sweet baby's arms
(Roll in my sweet baby's arms)
Roll in my sweet baby's arms
(Roll in my sweet baby's arms)
I'll lay around this shack
Till the mail train comes back
And I'll roll in my sweet baby's arms
...
