Sweet Baby Swing

© E. Patrick Johnson
March 12, 1999

Well I love my sweet baby
I love her I do
Tried to tell her mama
She cried, 'No not you'

Don't you know she's
One fine baby
She's one fine girl
Well I love my baby
I take her with me I will,

Packed up that rider
Her possessions in a trunk
Loaded up my automobile
Left her folks in a funk

Now her mammy took to cryin'
Her pappy's moanin' too
I know how they feelin' cause
I'd miss her too

Well we'll build a little homestead
They may visit anytime
But I must tell those good folks
That gal is mine
