Lyrics
I wish I were a babe, rockin’ in my Mama’s arms
Lord, I wish I were a babe, rockin’ in my Mama’s arms
From the moment of my birth my tears have fed this earth
And I wish I were a babe, rockin’ in my Mama’s arms

The trail is crooked, and the path is slow
But the climb to freedom is far to go
And it’s hard to love when you’re on your knees
And hard, dear God, to turn this rusty cheek

And I wish I were a babe, rockin’ in my Mama’s arms
Lord, I wish I were a babe, rockin’ in my Mama’s arms
From the moment of my birth my tears have fed this earth
And I wish I were a babe, rockin’ in my Mama’s arms

The night is wild, and the morn comes cold
But there ain’t no shackles can hold my soul
They’ve called me Christian, called me Black or Jew
If they call for me, they can call for you

And I wish I were a babe, rockin’ in my Mama’s arms
Lord, I wish I were a babe, rockin’ in my Mama’s arms
Want to sleep in the darkness, want to smile in the dawn
Just like a little babe, rockin’ in its Mama’s arms

Just like a little babe, rockin’ in its Mama’s arms
Just like a little babe, rockin’ in its Mama’s arms…….
