Rock my cradle (once again) Lyrics by Hank Williams
Rock my cradle (once again) by Hank Williams
Writer: Johnn Bond and Billy Folger
[C] Far away from friends and loved ones
'Mid the [G7] storm, a soldier [C] lay
Gathered 'round him all his buddies
Raised his [G7] head, we heard him [C] say.
There's a [F] lamp light in the [C] window
Where an [F] angel from a-[C] bove
Gently [F] rocked my baby [C] cradle
With such [G7] tender care and [C] love.
Mother [F] dearest, darlin' [C] mother
It would [F] ease this awful [C] pain
If she'd sing until I'm sleepin'
Rock my [G7] cradle once a-[C] gain.
'Neath the palms tonight he's sleepin'
On an island far away
Tho' the years pass on in sorrow
I still recall his words today.
REPEAT 2nd and 3rd verse.
