-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.
