OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Ain't gonna work on the railroad
Ain't gonna work on the farm

Allemande your corner girl, dosado your own
Do an allemande left and weave around the ring
I'll be rolling in my sweet baby's arms
Meet the girl swing her and promenade
Gonna lay around the shack til the mailtrain comes back
And be rolling in my sweet baby's arms


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway round
Come down the middle and square thru to four
Go all the way around the ring and do the right & left thru
Veer left and ferris wheel around
Hey, square thru go three hands and swing
Swing that corner girl and promenade
Gonna lay around the shack til the mailtrain comes back
And be rolling in my sweet baby's arms


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade inside the ring
Come on back, swing your man around I sing
Join all of those hands, circle left round the land
Do an allemande left and weave around the ring
I'll be rolling in my sweet baby's arms
Meet the girl swing her and promenade
Gonna lay around the shack til the mailtrain comes back
And be rolling in my sweet baby's arms

Roll In My Sweet Baby's Arms
 
 

I ain't gonna work on the railroad
Ain't gonna work on the farm
I'm gonna lay around the shack
Till the mail train comes back
And 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 the shack
Till the mail train comes back
And roll in my sweet baby's arms

Now where were you last Friday night
While I was lyin' in jail
Walking the streets with another man
Wouldn't even go my bail

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

I know your parents don't like me
They turn me away from your door
Had my life to live over
Wouldn't go there any more

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

Lyrics by Traditional.
Recorded by Buster Carter and Preston Young; Lester Flatt; Buck Owens; Dillard & Clark; many others.
