PRAIRIE LULLABY - originally by Jimmie Rodgers I think, but I love Eliza's version. Am Dm Am Shadows slowly creeping Am Dm Am Down the prairie's trail, Am Dm Am Everything is sleeping G G# G All but the nightingale. Am Dm Am Moon will soon be climbing Am E Am In the purple sky, Am Dm Am Night wind softly humming G E Am G7 This tender lullaby. CHORUS C C7 Cares of the day have fled, C7 F My little sleepyhead. C G7 C The stars are in the sky. C C7 Time that your prayers were said, F My little sleepyhead. C G7 C To a prairie lullaby. G Saddle up your pony. C The sandman's here D7 G G7 To guide you down the trail of dreams. C C7 Tumble in bed, my child, F You old sleepyhead, C G7 C To a prairie lullaby.
