She grew up with
The children of the stars 
In the Hollywood hills and the boulevard 
Her parents threw big parties  Everyone was there 
They hung out with folks like
 Dennis hopper, Bob Seeger, sonny and Cher

Now, she feels safe
In this bar on Fairfax 
And from the stage I can tell that
She can't let go and she can't relax 
And just before 
She hangs her head to cry
I sing to her a lullaby, I sing

Everything's gonna be all right 
Rockabye, rockabye 
Everything's gonna be all right 
Rockabye, rockabye  Rockabye 

She still lives with her mom
 Outside the city
Down that street about a half a mile
And all her friends tell her
She's so pretty 
But she'd be a whole lot prettier 
If she smiled once in a while 
`cause even her smile  Looks like a frown 
She's seen her share of devils 
In this angel town

But, everything's gonna be all right 
Rockabye, rockabye 
Everything's gonna be all right 
Rockabye, rockabye  Rockabye 

I told her I ain't so sure
 About this place 
It's hard to play a gig in this town
And keep a straight face
 Seems like everyone here's got a plan
It's kind of like Nashville with a tan, but,

Everything's gonna be all right 
Rockabye, rockabye 
Everything's gonna be all right 
Rockabye, rockabye 

Everything's gonna be all right 
Rockabye, rockabye 
Everything's gonna be all right 
Rockabye, rockabye,rockabye, bye, bye
Bye, bye
