Wyoming Lullaby (1)
- When the sun in sinking in Wyoming,
- When the ocean blue is turn'd to gold,
- In my dreams I can hear a melody,
- In my heart there's a tender memory;
- By the cabin door I see my mammy,
- With a little baby on her knee,
- Then comes back that Wyoming lullaby
- Mammy used to sing to me,
- When night is near, that song I hear.
Wyoming Lullaby (2)
- Go to sleep, my baby close your pretty eyes,
- Angels up above you, peeping at you, dearie, from the skies;
- Great big moon is shining, stars begin to peep,
- Time for little piccaninnies to go to sleep,
- Piccaninnies' time to go to sleep.
Wyoming Lullaby (3)
- There beneath the pines in old Wyoming,
- There's a little world that no one knows,
- Ev'ry flower there just means a living kiss
- From that mammy, whose smile I wouldn't miss;
- Soon I'm going back to old Wyoming,
- To that little cabin by the shore,
- Then each night I shall hear my mammy's voice
- Sing that lullaby once more,
- Just once again I'll hear that strain.
