Passenger & Gregory Alan Isakov – Sweet Baby James (James Taylor cover)


Well, there is a young cowboy
he lives on the range His horse and his cattle
are his only companions He works in the saddle
and he sleeps in the canyons Waiting for summer,
his pastures to change As the moon rises
he sits by his fire Thinking about women
and glasses of beer And closing his eyes
as the dogies retire He sings out a song
which is soft but it’s clear As if maybe
someone could hear So goodnight
you moonlight ladies Rockabye
sweet baby James Deep greens and blues
are the colors I choose Won’t you let me go down
in my dreams? Oh, and rockabye
sweet baby James Well, the first of December
was covered in snow So was the turnpike
from Stockbridge to Boston The Berkshires
seemed dreamlike On account
of that frosting With ten miles behind me
and ten thousand more to go There’s a song that they sing
when they take to the highway A song that they sing
when they take to the sea A song that they sing
of their home in the sky Maybe you can believe it
if it helps you to sleep Singing
works just fine for me So, goodnight
you moonlight ladies Rockabye
sweet baby James Deep greens and blues
are the colors I choose Won’t you let me go down
in my dreams? Oh, and rockabye
sweet baby James Rockabye
