Words by Edward D. Barker. Music by Kate Vanderpoel.

De whip-'will's singin' to de moon, go sleep, my honey;
He sing pow'ful mo'nful tune, go sleep, my honey.
De day-bird's sleepin' in its nes'-it know it time fo' to take a res',
An' it gwine to do its lebel bes', go sleep, my honey.

So safely sleep, my honey, do: dem twinklin' stars dun watch o'er you;
An' de big white moon lubs dis little black coon, go sleep, my honey.

de ole banjo am put away-go sleep, my honey;
Its pickin's froo till anudder day, go sleep, my honey,
Night-time hah sho'ly come to pass, de cricket's chirpin' in de grass,
An' de ole mule's gone to sleep at las', go sleep, my honey, --Refrain.

I heah de night-win' in de co'n, go sleep, my honey;
Dere's a ghos' outside as sho's you's bo'n, go sleep, my honey:
But he dassent come where we keep a light, an' de candle's bu'nin' all de night,
So sink to res'-des' feel all right, go sleep, my honey.-Refrain.
