Leroy Van Dyke – Now I Lay Me Down lyrics

(Go to sleep, go to sleep, go to sleep)
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray tonight that I won't weep,
For the girl who went away,
And left mje here to hurt this way,
If I die before I wake,
At least my heart won't ache,
Now I lay me down... To sleep.

Bless the girl that I still love,
May she find true happiness,
And make me strong enough
To overcome this loneliness,
The sandman's waiting patiently,
But there's too many memories,
I know tonight that I won't sleep,
So I lay me down... To weep.
Now I lay me down... To weep.
