MOONSHINE LULLABY from 1946 Broadway musical "Annie Get Your gun" (Irving Berlin 1946) Ethel Merman and Garth, Turner & Bibb with orchestra conducted by Jay Blackton (stage production) recorded 1946 Behind the hill There's a busy little still Where your pappy's workin' in the moonlight. Your lovin' pa Isn't quite within the law, So he's hidin' there behind the hill. Bye bye baby, Stop your yawnin'. Don't cry baby, Day will be dawnin'. And when it does, >From the mountain where he was, He'll be coming with a jug of moonshine. So count your sheep, Mama's singin' you to sleep With a moonshine lullaby. Dream of pappy, Very happy, With his jug of mountain rye. So count your sheep, Mama's singin' you to sleep With a moonshine lullaby. Ah, ah-ah-ah-ah, Ah, ah-ah-ah-ah. Behind the hill There's a busy little still Where your pappy's workin' in the moonlight. Your lovin' pa Isn't quite within the law, So he's hidin' there behind the hill. Bye bye baby, Stop your yawnin'. Don't cry baby, Day will be dawnin'. And when it does, >From the mountain where he was, He'll be coming with a jug of moonshine. So count your sheep, Mama's singin' you to sleep With a moonshine lullaby. Dream of pappy, Very happy, With his jug of mountain rye. So count your sheep, Mama's singin' you to sleep With a moonshine lullaby. (Transcribed by Peter Akers - May 2015)
