Hello all, theres a song written by Jimmie Driftwood, called the baby-o. I seen it performed by Grandpa Jones on Hee Haw a long time ago. It ends with the words "I'm the fool that slept in the barn last night". I have found the words to it,, but can't find a mp3. Can anyone help me out? Thanks

thanks Sparky, but that is not the one. This one is about a guy staying at someones house and he slept in the barn because he didn't want to sleep with the baby-o and smell baby breath. then the next morning a real pretty girl showed up in barn to milk the cow and told him her name but said that her daddy just called her the baby-o. she asked him is name and he said the fool that slept in the barn last night.

Here are the lyrics:

BABY-O

I went down to Riggso town,
I met an old man and his name was Brown
He said you can sleep in the shanty-o
but you have to sleep with the baby-o

When I got there i's froze to death
and I didn't wanna smell no baby breath
So I looked at him and I said by darn
if you don't mind I'll sleep in the barn

CHORUS: night was cold and the wind did blow
smoke poured out of the shanty-o
shivered and I shook with a frostbit toe
and I wished I'd slept with the baby-o

Mornin came and I took me a look
when I heard somebody cry sook by sook
standin on the frozen taw
was the prettiest gal in Arkansaw

I looked at her she looked at me
I said young lady who might you be
She said my name is Mary Jo
but the old man calls me the baby-o

She milked the cow and went to the shack
and had a big breakfast of razorback
I stood by the fire and I thawed my toe
and I couldn't help lookin at the baby-o

I was just about fixin to leave
she said what might your handle be
I held her hand and I told her right
I'm the fool that slept in the barn last night

Thanks Gary W. that is the song. I had found the lyrics but can't find the mp3. Like I said before it is on the Everybody's Grandpa 5 cd Box Set. It is on the last CD. I just haven't been able to download it.
