"Sing a Little Baby to Sleep" as written by and Tom T. Hall....
Too doo dup too doo doo doo doo doo
You're just a little baby boy six months old lying in your mama's lap
I'm sittin' here thinkin' of a song I could sing to get you to take a nap
You were born on the part of the river of life where the water is troubled and deep
This day and time there are not many songs to sing a little baby to sleep
Too doo dup too doo doo doo doo doo
I search my mind for a proper subject to set down the reason and rhyme
And I got to thinking it might have been better to be born at some other time
I know you're tired and I know you're weary and I don't like to see you weep
But there just don't seem to be any songs going to sing a little baby to sleep
Too doo dup too doo doo doo doo doo
I'll rock your cradle and your mama will croon that's all the comfort we know
You need a song you can keep on singing cause you've got a long way to go
Faith writes the words and love writes the music and hope can establish the beat
Your generation might know a song to sing a little baby to sleep
Too doo dup too doo doo doo doo doo
