Little Cowboy Lullaby

Words and Music by Bob Wills and Cindy Walker

Listen to me, cowhand, better roll in for the night,
You've put in quite a day for such a little mite.
Hear the wind ablowin, singin' you a song,
About that Texas sandman who will soon be along.

When a blanket of blue
Falls across the sage and sandland
Then that old Texas sandman
Will come ridin' through the sky

Close your eyes little cowhand
Soon you'll hit the trail to dreamland,
With that old Texas sandman
Who'll be comin' bye and bye

On a gold Palomino
In a saddle made of moon beams
You'll be roundin' up dreams
As on the milky way you roam

And when a blanket of gold
Lies across the sage and sandland
Then that old Texas sandman
Will be bringing you home.
