Close the Shutters, Willies Dead
Words and Music by James E. Stewart.

Close the shutters-Willie's dead,
Whom we loved so dear,
Like a dream his spirit fled,
From our home, now sad and drear.
Where the Spring-time flowers were blooming,
And the happy birds sing sweet,
Angels called him to their home,
Up in heaven where we shall meet.

Close the shutters-Willie's dead,
Hope with him has fled.
From our home, now sad and lone,
Close the shutters-Willie's dead.

Close the shutters-Willie's dead.
Gone in childhood's bloom,
Pillowed now his little head
In the cold and silent tomb.
O'er his grave the daisies blossom,
Where his little form was laid.
And the murm'ring streamlet plays,
'Neath the willow's quiet shade.-Chorus.

Close the shutters-Willie's dead.
Death has claimed him now,
Never more his smile will shed
Sunshine on poor mother's brow.
She is almost broken-heartpd.
And our home is sad to day;
Life has lost its hope and joy,
Since our Willie's gone away.-Chorus.
