-VERSE-
(quietly the 1st time, louder the 2nd time)
Am7				           Dm7	  
Once, there was a way_________ to get back homeward
G7					   C
Once, there was a way_________ to get back home
Em		Am           Dm9
Sleep pretty darling, do not cry,
G7		   	C    
 And I will sing a lullaby
-CHORUS-
(loudly)
C	   F		      C 
Gold  - en slumbers fill your eyes  
C	F		  C
Smiles awake you when you rise
Em		Am	      Dm9
Sleep pretty darling, do not cry,
G7		       C
And I will sing a lullaby

(Repeat VERSE)

HOW TO FINGER THE CHORDS:
  Am7	  Dm7	  G7	   C	  Em	  Am	  Dm9	   F
 o o o	  o	  ooo	   o o	o  ooo	 o   o	  o  o

I like to strum the first verse with no pick and then use a pick for the 
chorus and the rest of the song.  The end of this song leads directly into 
"Carry That Weight," with no break between the two songs.
