MISSOURI WALTZ (Music by Frederick Knight Logan / Lyrics by James Royce Shannon, 1916) Perry Como "Hush-a-bye m'baby, slumber time is comin' soon rest your head upon my breast while Mammy hums a tune the sandman is callin' where shadows are fallin' while the soft breezes sigh as in days long gone by!" Way down in Missouri, where I heard this melody when I was a little boy upon my Mammy's knee the old-folks were hummin' and the banjos were strummin' so sweet and low! Strum, strum, strum, strum strum! Seems I hear those banjos playin' once again Hmmm, hum, hmmm! That same old plaintive phrase! Way down in Missouri, where I heard this melody when I was a little boy upon my Mammy's knee the old-folks were hummin' and the banjos were strummin' so sweet and low!
