Kentucky Babe

Skeeters am a hummin'
on the honeysuckle vine
sleep Kentucky Babe!

Sandman am a comin'
to this little child of mine
sleep Kentucky Babe!

Silv'ry moon am a shinin'
on de heavens up a-bove
bob-o-link am pinin' for his little lad-y love . . .

You is mighty lucky
Babe of old Kentucky
close your eyes in sleep . . .
and fly away,
fly away Kentucky Babe,
fly away to rest, fly away,
lay your curly woolly head
on your mammy's breast,
hmm, hmmm, edah la da da dee
close your eyes in sleep!
