Pale moon shining on the fields below
Folks are crooning songs soft and low
Needn't tell me so because I know
It's sleepy time down South

Soft winds blowing through the pine wood trees
Folks down there live a life of ease
When old mammy falls upon her knees
It's sleepy time down south

Steamboats on the river a coming, a going
Splashing the night away
Hear those banjos ringing, the people are singing
They dance 'til break of day, hey, hey

Dear old Southland with his dreamy songs
Takes me back there where I belong
How I'd love to be in my mammy's arms
When it's sleepy time way down South

Dear old southland with his dreamy songs
Take me back there where I belong
How I'd love to be in my mammy's arms
When it's sleepy time down South
Sleepy time down South
