Rock-a-bye baby

G Rock-a-bye, baby, in the tree- D7 top,
when the wind blows, the C cradle will G rock;
G when the bough breaks, the cradle will D7 fall,
and down will come G baby, D7 cradle and G all.



1. Rock-a-bye, baby,
in the treetop,
when the wind blows,
the cradle will rock;
when the bough breaks,
the cradle will fall,
and down will come baby,
cradle and all.

2. Rock-a-bye, baby,
your cradle is green,
father ‘s a king
and mother ‘s a queen.
sister ‘s a lady
and wears a gold ring,
brother ‘s a drummer
and plays for the king.

3. Rock-a-bye baby,
way up on high,
never mind baby,
mother is ‘nigh
up to the ceiling,
down to the ground,
rock-a-bye baby,
up hill and down.

4. Baby is drowsing,
cosy and fair.
Mother sits near,
in her rocking chair.
Forward and back
the cradle she swings,
and though baby sleeps,
he hears what she sings.

5. From the high rooftops
down to the sea,
no one ‘s as dear
as baby to me.
Wee little fingers,
eyes wide and bright
now sound asleep
until morning light.

6. Hush-a-bye, baby,
up in the sky,
on a soft cloud
it ‘s easy to fly.
Angels keep watch
o’er you as you sleep,
so hush-a-bye, baby,
don’t make a peep.
