Lullaby of the Leaves
Rustling of the leaves used to be my lullaby In the sunny South when I was a tot so high And now that I have grown And myself alone Cradle me where Southern skies Can watch me with a million eyes Sing me to sleep Lullaby of the leaves Cover me with Heaven's blue And let me dream a dream or two Sing me to sleep Lullaby of the leaves I'm breezing along, along with the breeze I'm hearing a song, a song through the trees Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh That fine melody caressing the shore Familiar to me, I've heard it before Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, that's Southland Don't I feel it in my soul And don't I know I've reached my goal Sing me to sleep Lullaby of the leaves
