And Goodnight

I’ll sing to thee

In the same way you once sung to me

I will lay you down

Beneath the old willow tree

But the autoharp you once used to play

Will be put away

Will be put away

Put away

 

I’ll sing to thee

In the same way you once sung to me

I will tuck you in

For a long winter’s sleep

And the folk hemns you once used to sing to me

I will make them ring

I will make them ring

Make them ring

 

I’ll sing to thee

In the same way you once sung to me

I will let you go

Before I must walk home alone

And the sad sound this shared lullaby

Will be my goodbye

Will by my goodbye

Goodbye
