Joan Baez – Sail Away Ladies lyrics

"Sail Away Ladies" as performed in the album "Folksingers 'Round Harvard Square"

(First verse is hummed.)
Ain't no use sit 'n cry
You'll be an angel by and by
Don't you rock
Don't you rock, ah
Don't you rock, ah, my daddy-o
Don't you rock him daddy-o
I got a home in Tennessee
That's the place I wanna be
Ever I get my new house done
Give my old one to my son
Ain't no use sit 'n cry (Sail away, ladies, sail away.)
You'll be an angel by and by (Sail away, ladies, sail away.)
(Hummed final verse.)
