bombs are dropping, smoke fills the air
i wanna duck and cover but i've gotta stay out here
'cause i know myself and if i hole up in my room
i'll be consumed by the doom and the gloom

so i called john 'cause i know he knows sorrow
he said "i'll be in the city tomorrow"
so i go down and i watch him sing
and the way he sings sends a chill right through me, yeah

and now there's a mountain goat
precariously balanced on the frog stuck in my throat
it says "sometimes whispering's okay,
but maybe you'd feel better if you screamed today"

the lady took the baby
i know she loves the baby
but the baby has a daddy
and his daddy loves him too
how could she take the baby?
maybe she's gone crazy
she won't share
it's not fair
there's nothing i can do

the lady took the baby
i know she loves the baby
but the baby has a daddy
and his daddy loves him too
how could she take the baby?
maybe she's gone crazy
she won't share
it's not fair
there's nothing i can do

tuesday night grandma curled up in my bed
by wednesday morning my grandma was dead
i was in charlotte, i took the bus home
her shoes, watch, and teeth were still in my room

and as i lay me down to sleep i felt her spirit rise up through me
she said "i got to live a long eighty six years, dry your tears.
i know it's hard but please let go so i can meet your grandpa in the undertow
chin up girl, you've got to be strong, and know when you're singing i'm singing along"

the lady took the baby
i know she loves the baby
but the baby has a daddy
and his daddy loves him too
how could she take the baby?
maybe she's gone crazy
she won't share
it's not fair
there's nothing i can do

the lady took the baby
i know she loves the baby
but the baby has a daddy
and his daddy loves him too
how could she take the baby?
maybe she's gone crazy
she won't share
it's not fair
there's nothing i can do

little bitty baby so far away
we hope that you can come home soon
when we're not together, now or ever
always remember i love you

little bitty baby so far away
we hope that you can come home soon
when we're not together, now or ever
always remember i love you
