Missouri Waltz
 
"Hush-a-bye m'baby, slumber time is comin' soon
rest your head upon my breast while Mammy 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 boy upon my Mammy's knee
the old-folks were hummin' the banjo was strummin'
so sweet and low!
 
Strum, strum, strum, strum strum!
Seems I hear those banjos playin' once again
Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm!
That same old plaintive phrase!
 
Way down in Missouri, where I heard this melody
when I was a little boy upon my Mammy's knee
the old-folks were hummin' their banjos were strummin'
so sweet and low!
