Pale moon shining on the fields below,
Folks are crooning songs soft and low,
Needn't tell me so, because I know 
It's sleepy time down south.

Softs winds blowing thru the pinewood trees,
Folks down there live a life of ease;
When the twilight brings the evening breeze,
It's sleepy time down south.

(Bridge:)
Steamboats on the river, a-comin' and a-goin',
Splashing the night away
Hear those banjos ringing, the folks are alla-singin' -
They dance till break of day.

Dear old Southland, with its dreamy songs,
Takes me back there where I belong;
How I'd love to be mother's arms
When it's sleepy time down south.

(Repeat Bridge)

Dear old Southland, with its dreamy songs,
Takes me back where I belong;
How I'd love to be mother's arms
When it's sleepy time down south,
When it's sleepy time down south.
