"The Baby" as written by Larry Michael White and Harley Lee Allen....
Tin roof rusted now
Tin roof rusted now
Tin roof rusted
The old man's been busted now

Oh I held the baby in my hand
I held the baby in my hand
The baby was so tiny
It fit in the palm of my hand

And the wind did howl and the wind did moan
Oh dear darling you're not alone
The wind did howl and the wind did moan
Oh dear darling you're not alone

Oh the devil came between she and I
Oh on the floor I did lie
Why did they take her
What did they say, no
Why did they take her
Take her away
Take her away

And the wind did howl and the wind did moan
Oh dear darling you're not alone
The wind did howl and the wind did moan
And oh dear darling you're not alone

Oh I was swimming with the birds
Oh I was swimming with the birds
And out of a dark forest I heard words
Sing on sweet stranger

Oh the devil came between she and I
Oh on the floor I did lie
Why did they take her
What did they say, no
Why did they take her
Take her away
Take her away
