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 pinewood trees, Folks down there live a life of ease, When the twilight brings the evening breeze, It's sleepy time down south. Steamboats on the river a-comin' and a-goin', Splashing the night away, Hear those banjos ringin', the folks are all a-singin', They dance till break of day. Dear old southland, with its dreamy songs Takes me back there where I belong, How I'd love to be in mother's arms When it's sleepy time down south. ***** (As sung by Billie Holiday) Homesick, tired, all alone in a big city Why should eveybody pity me? Nighttime falling, and I'm yearning for Virginia Hospitality within ya calls me Pale moon shining on the fields below Folks are crooning songs soft and low Need not tell me so, Because I know it's sleepy time down south Softs winds blowing thru the pinewood trees Folks down there live a life of ease When the twilight brings the evening breeze It's sleepy time down south Steamboats on the river, a coming, a going Splashing the night away Hear those banjos ringing, The folks are all singing They dance till break of day Dear old Southland with its dreamy songs Takes back there where I belong I'll find heaven in my mothers arms When it's sleepy time down south ***** (As sung by Dean Martin) 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 pinewood trees Folks down there like a life of ease When old mammy falls upon her knees It's sleepy time down south Steamboats on the river a coming or a going Splashing the night away Hear those banjos ringing, the people are singing They dance til the break of day, 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 ***** (As sung by Louis Armstrong) Now the pale moon's shining on the fields below The Folks are crooning, soft and low You needn't tell me, boy, because I know When it's sleepy time down south Soft winds blowing through the pinewood trees The folks down there live a life of ease When old mammy falls on her knees When it's sleepy time down south Steamboats up the river a coming or going Splashing the night away You hear those banjos ringing, all the people all singing They dance till the break of day, oh Dear old southland with his dreamy songs Takes me back there where I belong Right here in my mammy's arms When it's sleepy time way down south (Instrumental Break) Dear old southland with it's dreamy songs Take me back there where I belong Right here in my mammy's arms When it's sleepy time Sleepy time down south Yes, Lawd! ***** (Contributed/Transcribed by Bill Huntley - November 2005)
