Fingerstyle picking at a moderate tempo.  For the triplet licks keep
your ring finger on the 2nd string, 3rd fret (where it already is from
the D chord) and hammer the triplets with your index and pinky fingers.

**********************************************************

VERSE 1:
Well I haven't got a lot to offer
Just a rhyme and a melody
But I promised I'd write if it took all night
A lullaby for thee

CHORUS:
And they say there ain't no sleepin' in heaven
Baby, that don't mean that you can't dream
So when you close your eyes
Know your mother and I
Pray the Lord your little soul to keep
And we never got a chance to hold you
No we never got to tell you goodnight
So we hope you can hear
As Jesus cradles you near
Baby, this is your lullaby

VERSE 2:
So are you runnin' with the angels?
are you singin' with the saints?
Are you throwin' a ball against a heavenly wall,
maybe swingin' on the pearly gates

VERSE 3:
Well there's so much love between us
and so much that I want to say
I wanna ramble a while
with my beautiful child
baby, I can hardly wait

REPEAT CHORUS
