Subject: Chord Req: curly headed baby
From: GUEST
Date: 27 Mar 06 - 05:19 PM

I'm looking for the lyrics and chords for this song...I think it's done by the Louvin brothers...thanks

She's my curly-headed baby, used to sit on momma's knee.
She's my curly-headed baby. She's from sunny Tennessee.
I have loved her since I met her more than any tongue can tell.
If she ever proves false-hearted I can never say farewell.
I am funny about the women for I'll tell you what they'll do:
They'll be crying over your shoulder and flirtin' with another too.

She's my curly headed baby
She's from sunny Tennessee
She's my curly headed baby
She's more than all the world to me

I have loved her since I met her (yes sir)
More than any tongue can tell
If she ever prove false-hearted
It would be so hard to say farewell
Yodeleyie-ie-ie-ie

(break)

Now let me tell you 'bout some women (hmmhmm)
I can tell you how they'll do
They gonna be cryin' on your shoulder
And be flirting with another too

She's my curly headed baby
She's from sunny Tennessee
She's my curly headed baby
She's more than all the world to me
Yodeleyie-ie-ie-ie

(break)

When I look into her blue eyes
There's more than words can ever say
I could never love some other
No one else can make me feel this way

She's my curly headed baby
She's from sunny Tennessee
She's my curly headed baby
She's more than all the world to me
Yodeleyie-ie-ie-ie

Subject: Lyr Add: MY CURLY HEADED BABY (from Louvin Bros.)
From: Jim Dixon

I listened to this today and found it quite different from what Peace posted back in 2006:


MY CURLY HEADED BABY
Traditional
As recorded by The Louvin Brothers on "Encore" (1961)

She's my curly-headed baby,
Used to set on her mama's knee.
She's my curly-headed baby.
She's from sunny Tennessee.

I have loved her since I met her,
More than I could ever tell,
And if she ever proves false-hearted,
I could never say farewell.

She's my curly-headed baby.
She's got heaven in her eyes.
Her arms could never hold another,
And her sweet lips would never lie.

Boys, I'll tell you 'bout most women.
I can tell you what they'll do.
They'll be cryin' on your shoulder,
And be flirting with another too.

She's my curly-headed baby,
Used to set on her mama's knee.
She's my curly-headed baby.
She's from sunny Tennessee.

It turns out many versions of this have been recorded; this is one of the earliest:


SHE'S MY CURLY HEADED BABY
As recorded by J E Mainer's Mountaineers, 1935.

[yodel]

She's my curly-headed baby.
She used to set on her mama's knee.
She's my curly-headed baby.
She's from sunny Tennessee.

I have loved her since I met her,
More than any tongue can tell.
If she ever proves false-hearted,
I can never say farewell.

She's my curly-headed baby.
I don't care what people say.
If she leaves me for another,
That will be her buryin' day.

I am funny about the women.
Boys, I'll tell you what they'll do:
They'll be cryin' on your shoulder,
Be flirting with another too.

[yodel]

[I'd] rather be in some dark holler,
Where the sun don't never shine,
Then to be some other's darling,
When you promised to be mine.

When I'm dead and in my coffin,
My pale face turned to the sun,
Won't you promise it around me(?).
Think of the deed that you have done.

Boys, I've told you about the women.
Boys, I've told you what they'll do.
They'll be cryin' on your shoulder,
Be flirting with another too.

She's my curly-headed baby,
Used to set on her mama's knee.
She's my curly-headed baby.
She's from sunny Tennessee.

[yodel]
