Copyright, 1898, by Chas. O. Brokaw.
Words by Deamor R. Drake. Music by H. O. Wheeler.

Go to sleep, you pickaninny, hain't no time foah cryin' any.
Mammy's little blue-grass honey bettah shut yoah shiny eye.
Case de big moon am a peepin' in to see If youse am sleepin',
Purty soon he'll come a creepin' 'round to cotch youse if you cry.
Brier Fox am right behind you. if you'se sleepin' he can't find you.
Go right by an' nebber mind you, sleep, ma honey, sleep.

Mammy's blue-grass honey am all covered up an' warm.
Sleep, ma honey, sleep!
Rockin' by de kitchen fire on his mammy's arm.
Sleep, ma honey, sleep.
Hush-a-bye, O rock-a-bye, O Mammy's blue-grass honey;
Big moon am a-watchin' foah to cotch you by an' by,
Bettah be a sleepin' when he comes a-creepin'.
Mammy's little blue-grass honey, hush, O hush-a-bye.-[Whistle.]

Go to sleep, you pickaninny, cradle's waitin' by de chimney
Foah my little blue-grass honey, shut yoah eyes, you little coon
Sweet potatoes am a-smilin' case de hoe-cake am a-spilin',
Doan't you heah de kettle bilin'r Daddy's comin' purty soon.
Pickaninnies all am sleepin' when de big moon am a-peepin',
By m' by he'll come a-creepin', sleep, ma honey, sleep.-Chorus.
