Hush a bye my baby Slumber time is coming soon Rest your head upon my breast While mommy hums a tune The sandman is callin' where Shadows are fallin' 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 knees The old folks were humming Their banjoes were strumming So sweet and low Strum strum strum strum strum Seems hear those banjoes playin' 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 time song Hush a bye my baby Go to sleep on mommy's knee Journey back to Dixieland In dreams again with me It seems like your mommy is There once again And the old folks were strumming That same old refrain Way down in Missouri Where I learned this lullaby When the stars were blinkin' And the moon was climbin' high Seems I hear voices low As in days long ago Singing hush a bye
