“The Baby” tells a heart-wrenching tale of a man reflecting on the passing of time and the realization that his youngest child, once referred to as “the baby,” has grown up and moved on. The narrative is deeply personal, exploring the bittersweet journey of parenthood and the inevitable moment when children spread their wings and leave the nest.  The song tells the full life journey of being the youngest child of the family to reaching the age where your mother passes away.

Lyrically, the song captures the universal experience of watching loved ones grow, change, and embark on their own adventures. Shelton’s storytelling prowess shines through as he vividly describes the child’s milestones, from the first steps to learning to drive, and the inevitable departure that leaves a void in the parent’s heart.  In the end, “the baby” of the family reaches that age where his mother passes away.

“The Baby” song was written by Michael White and Harley Allen.

Blake Shelton The Baby Lyrics

My brother said that I was rotten to the core
I was the youngest child, so I got by with more
I guess she was tired by the time I came along
She’d laugh until she cried, I could do no wrong
She would always save me because I was her baby
I worked a factory in Ohio, a shrimp boat in the Bayou
I drove a truck in Birmingham, turned 21 in Cincinnati
I called home to mom and daddy, I said your boy is now a man
She said I don’t care if you’re 80, you’ll always be my baby
She loved that photograph of our whole family
She’d always point us out for all her friends to see
That’s Greg he’s doing great, he really loves his job
Ronnie with his two kids, how ’bout that wife he’s got
And that one’s kinda crazy, but that one is my baby
I got a call in Alabama, said come on home to Louisiana
And come as fast as you can fly
‘Cause your momma really needs you, and says she’s got to see you
She might not make it through the night
The whole way I drove 80, so she could see her baby
She looked like she was sleepin’ and my family had been weepin’
By the time that I got to her side
And I knew that she’d been taken and my heart it was breakin’
I never got to say goodbye
I softly kissed that lady and cried just like a baby
