Hank Williams – Rock My Cradle lyrics

Recorded by hank williams, sr.
Writer: johnn bond and billy folger

[c] far away from friends and loved ones
'mid the [g7] storm, a soldier [c] lay
Gathered 'round him all his buddies
Raised his [g7] head, we heard him [c] say.

There's a [f] lamp light in the [c] window
Where an [f] angel from a-[c] bove
Gently [f] rocked my baby [c] cradle
With such [g7] tender care and [c] love.

Mother [f] dearest, darlin' [c] mother
It would [f] ease this awful [c] pain
If she'd sing until I'm sleepin'
Rock my [g7] cradle once a-[c] gain.

'neath the palms tonight he's sleepin'
On an island far away
Tho' the years pass on in sorrow
I still recall his words today.

Repeat 2nd and 3rd verse.
