Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 38
TIRED LASSIE, GO TO SLEEP.
Cupyright, 1892, by Willis Woodward & Co.
Words by J. Ross. Music by Henry Whitcombe.
Tired lassie, go to sleep, mother is watching near;
Close those pretty eyelids sweet, nothing need you fear;
Tiny hands so soft and white fold in peace and rest,
Mother's darling sweetly sleep-by no care oppressed.
Sleep and rest, sleep and rest, father will come to thee soon;
Rest, rest on mother's breast, father will come to thee soon;
Father will come to his babe in the nest, silver sails all out of the West,
Under the silver moon. Tired lassie, sleep; sleep, my pretty one, sleep.
Tired lassie, go to sleep, thy troubles soon pass over:
Rest, my sweet, your pretty head, angels 'round thee hover;
Lullaby, sweet lullaby, sleep, my darling, sleep:
Close those blue eyes, tired lassie, while stars softly peep.- Chorus.
