Roy Fox and his Band
Hush-a-bye, ma baby, slumbertime is comin' soon
Rest yo' head upon my breast while Mommy hums a tune
The sandman is callin' where shadows are fallin'
While the soft breezes sigh as in days long gone by
Way down in Missouri where I heard this melody
When I was a little kid upon my Mommy's knee
The darkies were hummin', their banjoes were strummin'
So sweet and low
Seems I hear those banjoes playin' once again
That same old plaintive strain
