Caribou

This might not be the one that was requested—


BABY GIRL
Written by Carter Stanley
As sung by Ricky Skaggs on the various-artists collection "Legacy: A Tribute to the First Generation of Bluegrass" (1997)

CHORUS: Little girl (little girl), baby girl,
She's our darling, little precious baby girl,
Like an angel to me and I know that He
Sent from Heaven our little baby girl.

1. She's as sweet as the flowers of springtime.
Her little eyes they sparkle so bright.
Just a touch of her little baby hand
Seems to guide my weary footsteps day and night. CHORUS

2. How those two little arms try to hold me!
Her little heart's a blessing to our home;
And at night when I'm far far away,
As dream of her I'm never all alone. CHORUS

Like an angel to me and I know that He
Sent from Heaven our little baby girl.

[Also recorded by: Chris Cairns, John Lawless, Jeanie Stanley, The Stanley Brothers, and The Clinch Mountain Boys.]

My transcription from the recording found on Spotify, which comes from "Greatest Hits" (2010), which probably comes from Decca 6051, 7/16/41. No songwriter is named at the sites I've been able to check.


BABY GIRL
As recorded by the Delmore Brothers

Your two bright eyes they shine like diamonds.
I long to see your hair in curls.
I'd give the world to hold you, darling,
And to call you baby girl.

I held the picture, dear, you gave me.
My Bible holds your little curl.
In dreams again it seems I hold you
As I call you baby girl.

You say you long to see your daddy.
I know you'll never prove untrue.
The years seem oh so long, my darling,
Since I've been away from you.

You soon will grow to be a lady
And go out in this great wide world.
No matter, darling; when I meet you,
I'll still call you baby girl.

Tonight I see your face before me,
Your dimpled cheeks and teeth like pearl.
I reach to touch your little hand, dear,
But you're gone, my baby girl.

REPEAT FIRST VERSE.
