I ain't gonna work on the railroad
                        E
Ain't gonna work on the farm

Lay a-round the shack
         D
Till the mail train comes back
E                           A
And roll in my sweet baby's arms
A
Roll in my sweet baby's arms
                        E
Roll in my sweet baby's arms
A
Lay round the shack
         D
Till the mail train comes back
     E                       A
And  roll in my sweet baby's arms

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

A
Roll in my sweet baby's arms
                        E
Roll in my sweet baby's arms
A
Lay round the shack
         D
Till the mail train comes back
E                           A
And roll in my sweet baby's arms

harmonica/banjo break

A
I know your parents don't like me
                            E
They turn me away from your door
A              D
Had my life to live over
E                     A
Wouldn't go there any more
A
Roll in my sweet baby's arms
                         E
Roll in my sweet baby's arms
A
Lay round the shack
         D
Till the mail train comes back
E                           A
And roll in my sweet baby's arms

banjo

A
Roll in my sweet baby's arms
                         E
Roll  in my sweet baby's arms
A
Lay round the shack
         D
Till the mail train comes back
E                           A
And roll in my sweet baby's arms
