The Baby

Blake Shelton

 My brother said that I, was rotten to the core
 was the youngest child,      so I got by with more
 I guess she was tired by, the time I came along
 She'd laugh until she cried,       I could do no wrong
 She would always save me, because I was her baby

Chorus 1:
I worked a factory in Ohio, a shrimp boat in the Bayou
 I drove a truck in Birmingham
Turned 21 in Cincinnati, I called home to mom and daddy
 I said "Your boy is now a man."
She said "I don't care if you're 80, you'll always be my baby."

Verse 2:
She loved that photograph, of our whole family
She'd always point us out, for all her friends to see
That's Greg he's doing great, he really loves his job
And Ronnie with his 2 kids, how 'bout that wife he's got
And that one's kinda crazy, but that one is my baby

Chorus 2:
I got a call in Alabama, said come on home to Louisiana
And come as fast as you can fly
Cause your momma really needs you, and says she's got to see you
She might not make it through the night
The whole way I drove 80, so she could see her baby

Chorus 3:
She looked like she was sleepin', and my family had been weepin'
By the time that I got to her side
And I knew that she'd been taken, and my heart it was breakin'
I never got to say goodbye
I softly kissed that lady, and cried just like a baby
