about

This week I have a new toy! I was given a new melodica by my dear friends this weekend as a thank-you present for officiating their wedding (thanks, and congrats yo! -- that wedding was unbelievably awesome!) and it fits in perfectly with the song that I wanted to write this week. A different friend is expecting a baby very soon, and I thought it would be a good time to try my hand at writing a lullaby. The rich earthiness of the melodica coupled with my banjo made the task an absolute pleasure. My only regret is that my voice is a bit haggard from a weekend of wedding partying, and I think some high harmonies that I just couldn’t hit today would have nicely rounded out this soothing little tune. Nonetheless, I sincerely hope that when little heads hit little pillows with this song playing softly nearby, that sweet dreams are shortly to follow.

lyrics

Lay your head down
And go to sleep now little one
'Cause your dreams of the sunshine
And the raindrops gotta come
And the whole world is ahead of you
Just behind the setting sun
So go to sleep
Go to sleep little one

Lay your head down
And go to sleep now little one
'Cause your dreams of the wide world
And your best days gotta come
And your whole life ahead of you
Just behind the setting sun
So go to sleep
Go to sleep little one
