Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Lay around the 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
And I ain't gonna work on the farm
I'll lay around the shack till the mail train comes back
And I'm rollin' in my sweet baby's arms.

Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Lay around the shack till the mail train comes back
And I'll roll in my sweet baby's arms.

--- Instrumental ---

Mama's a beauty operator
Sister can wheel and can spin
Dad owns an interest in an old cotton gin
Just watch that old cotton roll in.

Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Lay around the shack till the mail train comes back
And I'll roll in my sweet baby's arms.

--- Instrumental ---

Well where were you last Saturday night
While I was laying in jail
Walkin' the streets with another man
You wouldn't even go my bail.

Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Lay around the shack till the mail train comes back
And I'll roll in my sweet baby's arms...
