My Rockin

My Rockin' Baby

Gene Watson & The Rockets

(Gene Watson, TRI-DEC, 1956)

Well, I went to my baby the other night
And when I arrived there, the lights were shining bright
When I knocked on the frontdoor, the backdoor slammed
I knew my pretty baby was with another man
My rockin' baby, my rockin' baby
My rockin' baby done rocked away from me

Well, I went around the house to see what I heard
My baby was a-leavin' in a Thunderbird
She knew how much I loved her, but it weren't no use
I knew my pretty baby had a-broken loose
My rockin' baby, my rockin' baby
My rockin' baby done rocked away from me

Well, I went around the house to see what I heard
My baby was a-leavin' in a Thunderbird
She knew how much I loved her, but it weren't no use
I knew my pretty baby had a-broken loose
My rockin' baby, my rockin' baby
My rockin' baby done rocked away from me

If you were in my place, let me tell you Joe
If you have a rockin' baby, better let 'er go
She rocks and rolls and turns you plum blind
She's just like the mama, that I thought was mine
My rockin' baby, my rockin' baby
My rockin' baby done rocked away from me

Well, I went around the house to see what I heard
My baby was a-leavin' in a Thunderbird
She knew how much I loved her, but it weren't no use
I knew my pretty baby had a-broken loose
My rockin' baby, my rockin' baby
My rockin' baby done rocked away from me

If you were in my place, let me tell you Joe
If you have a rockin' baby, better let 'er go
She rocks and rolls and turns you plum blind
She's just like the mama, that I thought was mine
My rockin' baby, my rockin' baby
My rockin' baby done rocked away from me
