Words by Mattle Marr. Music by Billy Fisher.

I see a grey coon in de corn, sleep, baby, sleep,
I heah de massa blow his horn, sleep, baby, sleep;
I see a niggah at de grey coon shoot,
I heah de echo of de old horn's toot,
An' I heah an owl in de wildwood hoot,
Sleep, baby sleep. Ob! e-s-h-h

Go to sleep, my darling baby boy,
Go to sleep, you are my pride and joy;
Go to sleep and close your little eyes,
For they'll all keep watch of you up in the skies.

Alligator gruntin' in de ole bayou, sleep, baby, sleep,
At a fat pig a-fishin' in de flue, sleep, baby, sleep;
His teeth dey am big, an' wide, an' white.
An' he am a-chucklin' at de great big bite
He is gwine to have off dat pig to-night.
Sleep, baby, sleep. oh! s-s-h-h-Retfrain.

I heah de old wild geese a-flyin' by, sleep, baby, sleep,
De air am a-ringin' wid dere loud cry, sleep, baby, sleep;
It's gwine to he cole, but you am sung.
As de little hoppin' lizard an'de big June bug,
So I'll leab you now wid a good-night hug,
Sleep, baby, sleep. oh! s-s-h-h- Refrain.
