    Can't find this anywhere

    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.
