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.
