Kentucky Babe
 
Skeeters am a hummin' 
on the honeysuckle vine
sleep Kentucky Babe!
 
Sandman am a comin' 
to this little child of mine
sleep Kentucky Babe!
 
Silvery moon am a shinin' 
on de heavens up above
bobolink am pinin' for his little lady love . . .
 
You is might lucky 
Babe of old Kentucky 
close your eyes in sleep . . . 
and fly away, 
fly away Kentucky Babe, 
fly away to rest, fly away, 
lay your curly woolly head 
on your mammy's breast, 
hmm, hmmm, edah la da da dee
close your eyes in sleep!
