OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain across the ring
Well roll away, circle left I sing
Four ladies gonna roll away
You circle round that land
Left allemande, weave the ring
I'll be rollin' in my sweet baby's arms
Meet the girl, swing 'er and promenade
I'm gonna lay around the shack 'til the mail train gets back
And I'm rollin' in my sweet baby's arms


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands round you do
You gonna meet the sides and do the right & left thru
Swing thru tonight, let the boy run to the right
Half tag, scoot back and then
Boy run around the girl, square thru get 3 hands around
Swing 'er and you promenade
I'm gonna lay around the shack 'til the mail train gets back
And I'm rollin' 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.
