Rock My Cradle (Williams Hank)

Far away from friends and loved ones 'Midst the storm, a soldier lay Gathered 'round him all his buddies Raised his head, we heard him say There's a lamp light in the window Where an angel from above Gently rocked my baby cradle With such tender care and love Mother dearest, darlin' mother It would ease this awful pain If she'd sing until I'm sleepin' Rock my cradle once again 'Neath the palms, tonight, he's sleepin' On an island far away Though the years pass on in sorrow I still recall his words today There's a lamp light in the window Where an angel from above Gently rocked my baby cradle With such tender care and love Mother dearest, darlin' mother It would ease this awful pain If she'd sing until I'm sleepin' Rock my cradle once again
