The Missouri Waltz - John Valentine Eppel, J. R. Shannon

  
Hush a bye my baby slumber time is coming soon
Rest your head on mommie’s
breast while daddy hums a tune
As the old folks were humming the banjos
were strumming 
And the soft breezes sigh as in days long gone by

Way down in Missouri where I heard this melody
When I was a little
fellow on my mommie's knee
The old folks were humming the banjos were
strumming so sweet and low

Hush a bye my baby go to sleep on daddy’sknee
Journey back to Dixie Land in dreams again with me
Oh, it seems like your daddy was there once again
And the old folks were
strumming that same old refrain

Way down in Missouri when I heard this
lullaby
While the stars were blinking and the moon was shining high
As the old folks were humming the banjos were strumming
so sweet and low
