"Kentucky Babe" lyrics - EDDY ARNOLD

"Kentucky Babe"

(Close your eyes, close your eyes in sleep)

Skeeters am a hummin' on honeysuckle vine
Sleep Kentucky babe
Sandman am a comin' to this little boy of mine
Sleep Kentucky babe.

Silvery moon am shining in the heavens up above
Bubblelink am pining for his little lady love
You is mighty lucky babe of old Kentucky
Close your eyes in sleep

Fly away, fly away,
Kentucky babe fly away to rest
Fly away, lay your little pearly head
On your mommy's breast. mhmm

Close your eyes in sleep
(Kentucky sleep. Kentucky babe)...
