When It's Sleepy Time Down South

by Cannonball Adderley

Julian Edwin "Cannonball" Adderley (September 15, 1928 – August 8, 1975) was a jazz alto saxophonist of the hard bop era of the 1950s and 1960s.




Homesick tired All alone in a big city 
Why should ev'rybody pity me,
Nighttime's falling, folks are a singin', 
they dance till break of day
Dear Old Southland with it's dreamy songs 
Takes me back there where I belong 
How I'd love to be in mammy's arms
When It's Sleepy Time Down South
