Ernest Tubb — Our Baby's Book lyrics

There's a new star in heaven tonight the brightest of them all up there
As we gaze at the sky we wonder why that the Lord took our baby so fair
For he was as sweet as the rose his eyes was so big bright and blue
And it made me so glad they said he favors his dad
And my wife that he's the image of you
[ ac. Guitar ]
Now you should see our baby's book it's pink and bordered with gold
Though it's not complete but on the first sheet our darling's life story is told
It tells of the days that he came to add more joy to our home
After seven short weeks our Master did speak and now Rodger Dale has gone
But I know that he's happy up there I can vision each action and look
Friends as you travel on please remember this song
For it's written in our baby's book
