Loretta Lynn – Big Sister Little Sister lyrics

(Give up to the baby that's what they'd always say)
And big sister would let her path away
We shared a sandbox little sister and me I was her big sister and she was only three
Give up to the baby that's what they'd always say
And big sister would let her path away
All through our childhood and our high school days
My little sister always had to have her way
Now I can't hurt the baby and I can't let him go
Be brave big sister this time and say no
Now all that I remember as they drove out of sight
Just married and her holdin' the ones I love so tight
Now all I do is rock my darling I just can't let her cry
So rock a bye baby rock a bye
Give up to the baby and I'd lose every time
Now they're saying big sister is losin' her mind
