Words by Geo. Purdy. Music by Fannie Rice,
Hush thee, my baby, the shadows are falling
O'er forest And lea, to bring rest to thee;
Now close thy dear, sweet eyes, love, so soft and so blue,
Like pretty violets, all wet with dew.
Bye-lo, baby, bye-lo, darling, go to sleep;
Bye-lo, baby; bye-lo, baby, go to sleep.
Bye-lo, baby; bye-lo, bye-lo, baby, bye;
Bye-lo, baby; bye-lo, bye-lo, baby, bye.
Song birds, so joyous, have all gone to rest,
And sunset is fading in the golden West:
So close thy dear, sweet eyes. love, and dream of angels bright.
Who guard thee, precious baby, 'till morning's rosy light.-Refrain & Cho.
Slumber, precious darling, and peaceful be thy sleep.
For mother is near thee, faithful watch to keep;
And night-birds are calling am) flying so low,
'Tis time little baby should off to dreamland go.
Bye-lo, baby, bye-lo. mother watch will keep;
Little stars are shining, and baby's fast asleep.- Chorus.
