The Missouri Waltz
Recorded by Eddy Arnold    
Written by J.R.Shannon and John V. Eppel

C             G7           C                   
Hush a bye my baby slumber time is coming soon
                 G7                 C                 
Rest your head upon my breast while mommy hums a tune
    F                        C                   
The sandman is calling where shadows are falling
          D7                      G7                 
While the soft breezes sigh as in days long gone by

C           G7       C                                   
Way down in Missouri where I heard this melody
             G7           C                   
When I was a little child on my mommy's knees
    F                            C
The old folks were humming their banjos were strumming
   D7     G7   C   
So sweet  and  low
              G7         C                     
Hush a bye my baby go to sleep on mommy's knee
                G7           C                    
Journey back to Dixieland in dreams again with me
   F                        C                
It seems like your mommy is there once again
        D7                            G7                
And the old folks were strumming that same old refrain

C           G7       C                    
Way down in Missouri where I learned this lullaby
                    G7               C                      
When the stars were blinking and the moon was climbing high
      F                     C             
And I hear mommy glow as in days long ago
        D7    G7  C   
Singing hush  a   bye
