“Prairie Lullaby” Lyrics

Shadows slowly creepin’
Down the prairie trail
Everything is sleepin’
All but the nightingale

Moon will soon be climbin’
In the purple sky
Night winds all a-hummin’
This tender lullaby

Cares of the day have fled
My little sleepyhead
Stars are in the sky
And that the prayers were said
My little sleepyhead
To a prairie lullaby

Saddle up your pony
Sandman’s here
To guide you down the trail of dreams
Tumble in bed, my tired
My little sleepyhead
To a prairie lullaby

Did oh-doo layie-ho doo-layie
Ey ho-layie-ho doo-layie
Ey ho-layie-ho doo-layie, doo-layiee

Saddle up your pony
Sand Man’s here
To guide you down the trail of dreams
Tumble in bed, my tired
My little sleepyhead
To a prairie lullaby

Did oh-doo layie-ho doo-layie
Ey ho-layie-ho doo-layie
Ey ho-layie-ho doo-layie, doo-layie

“I felt like that was it.”
“Sure did, ha ha.”
“Golly.”
