ROCK-A-BYE-BABY
An American Indian Story Song by Jean Warren
Adapted from a traditional lullaby.
 
Rock-a-bye baby
Up on my back.
Snuggle up close
In your cradleboard sack.

When you are ready
We'll go for a walk
Safe on my back
Your cradle will rock.

Rock-a-bye-baby
Off we will go.
I walk along
With my baby in tow.

Close your sweet eyes
And dream a sweet dream
As I hunt for berries
Down by the stream.

When I get tired
I'll just find a tree
To let the soft breeze
Rock you for me.

Don't be afraid
There's nothing to fear
I'll sing you a song,
So you'll know that I'm near.

Rock-a-bye-baby
In the tree top.
When the wind blows
Your cradle will rock.

When the bough breaks
Your cradle will fall
But mommy will catch you
Cradle and all!
