Missouri Waltz

Missouri Waltz

(J.V.Eppel. Arr. Knight / Logan)

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
