Hush-a-bye ma baby,  slumber time is comin' soon.

Rest yo head upon my breast,  while mommy hums a tune.
The sandman is calling,  where shadows are falling,
While the soft breezes sigh as in days long gone by.
'Way down in Missouri where I heard this melody,
When I was a little child on my mommy's knee.
The old folks were hummin',
Their banjos were strummin',
So sweet and low.
Strum, strum, strum, strum, strum,
Seems I hear those banjos playing once again,
Hum, hum, hum, hum, hum,
That same old plaintive strain.
Hear that mournful melody,
It just haunts you the whole day long.
And you wander in dreams,
Back to Dixie it seems
When you hear that old song.
